Legacy of a Quiet Man
SINEAD STONE & GERARD FARRELLY
fan of the classic film The Quiet Man is
familiar with that haunting melody which frames
the unforgettable shots of Maureen O'Hara. The song,
'The Isle of Innisfree', was written by Dick
Farrelly in 1950. Now more than half a century later,
his son, pianist Gerard Farrelly, has released it
again with exquisite vocals by Sinead Stone. Legacy
of A Quiet Man offers a new take on the song and
the entire album, arranged and produced by Farrelly
as a tribute to his father, is filled with familiar
Sinead Stone whose vocal presence is both solid
yet vulnerable, performs all the songs spectacularly.
In addition to 'The Isle of Innisfree' other highlights
on the album are 'When Today is Yesterday' and 'The
Gypsy Maiden'. Overall, the album is an emotional
journey and as a tribute to father from son, it
feels very personal.".
