Colleen Raney – 2 free tracks

Colleen Raney

Colleen Raney is among the best young Celtic singers of her generation, inspired by the Irish and Scottish songs and tunes that she grew up with as a member of the multi-talented Raney family and alongside the world renowned harp and dulcimer duo Magical Strings. Through her gorgeous voice, at turns whisper soft or intensely powerful, her deft arrangements, and her sidemen – some of the best acoustic musicians in the Northwest – Colleen breathes new life into the old songs, bringing out new facets to the music that haven’t been heard before.

Raney, who is currently touring a new duo recording, Cuan, with Colm MacCárthaigh, makes her home in Portland, Oregon where she fronts a band of powerhouse Irish musicians that has included, in various combinations, Casey Neill, Hanz Araki, Zak Borden, Matt Jerrell, Cary Novotny, Johnny Connolly, and Colm MacCárthaigh.
