What better balm could there be for sleep than the enchanting strains of a classic Celtic melody? Aine Minogue presents an album of sheer exquisiteness, where tender harp melodies whisk the listener away in a peaceful, dreamy reverie. Minogue is joined on the album by Seamus Egan, whose Irish whistle adds heart to "I Am Asleep," as well as Eugene Friesen on cello, Mildred Pennington on oboe and Scott Petito on guitar/keyboards. Minogue's luminous harp strains certainly take center stage, making for a truly gorgeous listening experience. Some of the songs are instrumental, while others feature Minogue on lead vocals. Songs include the Welsh lullaby "Suo Gan," traditional favorite "The Ash Grove" and the precious instrumental tune "William's Lullaby."

About the Artist
As traditional Irish music and dance continue to enjoy phenomenal success both here and in Ireland, Aine Minogue is an artist who has long explored its themes and who captures its very essence. Her voice reflects the lyricism and richness to be found in Irish music, mythology and poetry with a voice undeniably her own and a diverse group of instruments that add to the traditional flavor of her work.

Born in Borrisokane, County Tipperary, Aine's large musical family encouraged her to pursue a number of different instruments during her youth (which explains her obvious skill at arranging). They played together as a family and attended fleadhs (traditional music festivals). But it was at the age of twelve while at boarding school in County Galway that Aine discovered her true love - the harp - which she decided to pursue in lieu of the others. After completing school she spent three years developing her talent as a harpist at Bunratty Castle, County Clare, then moved to the United States, settling in New England.

Aine's harp has entertained Presidents and Prime Ministers. She is a regular performer at folk festivals and concerts throughout the world. Her recordings include The Mysts of Time, Between the Worlds, Circle of the Sun, Celtic Meditation Music, Celtic Lamentations, Celtic Pilgrimage (2008) and most recently a collaboration with filmmaker Michael Yip entitled Winter, A Meditation (DVD, 2009)
