Walker of the Snow

“By turn world-weary, tender and deeply philosophical, Tyrrell wanders through vastly different landscapes… Here be folk music as it was meant to be: pugilistic at times, all embracing at others. Tyrrell’s appetite for telling it like it is is as unquenchable as ever.”
Siobhan Long – Irish Times.

“No other writer or singer in Ireland would have apprehended the shadow much less made substance of this cycle of songs. This is an album to be listened to gently for the enjoyment of its gusto. It deserves the widest possible audience”. Eamonn Mc Cann

Taking its name from a poem by 19th century Dublin poet Charles Dawson Shanley, “The Walker of the Snow” is an album diverse in character but unified in direction.  Tyrrell’s voice, of course, takes center stage; its raw “growl” both conveys the album’s thematic cues and complements well its tendency toward sparse, atmospheric arrangements.  Tyrrell’s selections – some original, others taken from the traditional repertory, adapted from poetry or borrowed from songwriters outside the tradition – all revel in story and metaphor, often injected with a bracing (and disarming) directness that impels listeners to understand the messages in them.  
    The album’s musical arrangements are built on Tyrrell’s mandocello and tenor guitar, but many also include acoustic, electric & slide guitar, Hammond organ, and even synthesizer.  With this palette of instruments, all the tracks are able to retain a sense of bardic familiarity typical of Tyrrell’s style, but it allows in an occasional folk-rock sensibility that moves the album beyond the typical borders of Irish traditional song.

For example, his version of the traditional “She Moves Through The Fair,” echoes Fairport Convention’s 1968 folk-rock recording in tone.  However, Tyrrell’s unmistakable delivery and phrasing make the composition his own.  The same can be said of his take on John Lennon’s “Working Class Hero,” a song that few can adapt effectively, but one on which Tyrrell excels.Led by Tyrrell’s powerful voice, “The Walker of the Snow” is an excellent album that explores the corners of existential meaning.  It will surely appeal to trad fans, especially those interested in ballads and vocal music, but Tyrrell’s style is hard to pin down and can therefore reach out across genres – hopefully, people “out there” will hear him.

Cry of a Dreamer

 “Words are recruited by him (Tyrrell) from a kaleidoscope of eras, sources and writers, fed into the processor of his cranium, to be measured, tried on and fitted out with the singer’s forte  – a fine tune”, The Irish Times

 “(Tyrrell) displays an assortment of indigenous musical styles from Cajun to Blues, to rock to Irish traditional”, held together by astonishingly accomplished musicianship, rooted in the heartfelt tradition of honesty” HotPress

There is a serious Roy Harperish originality to this guy, even though he sings a lot of other people’s songs and trad anthems such as Wild Mountain Thyme.

Seán Tyrrell has fostered a reputation as a lover of language, of poetry, of words strung together in webs that capture moments and places.  This reputation was confirmed by his first album (released in 1994) and is further strengthened by this latest CD. Roots.
