Tara Music is proud to announce the release of a very special anthology of Stockton's Wing's music:
for the first time ever, a definitive career-spanning collection of their legendary and groundbreaking
blend of trad, folk and pop has been compiled onto one wonderful double set.
With everything from soft introverted ballads to whirling fiddle tunes and out-and-out pop hits like
‘Beautiful Affair' and ‘Walk Away' plus previously unreleased gems like their duet with Christy Moore
from the RTÉ archives, this is a collection that tells the story of an ensemble of musicians, songwriters,
and arrangers with a mutual desire to blur the lines between traditional Irish music and pop.
Spanning four decades, this completely remastered retrospective documents the history of a truly
seminal Irish band.
– 41 newly remastered Jigs, Reels & Hits on 2CDs
– 14 tracks that have been previously unavailable on CD or digitally
– 4 unreleased tracks on the 2CD and digital versions
– Duets with The Dubliners and Christy Moore
– Two brand new live recordings
...making this a must-have album for any lover of great Irish music.
It's a Beautiful Affair. Lose yourself in it.
