The CD, "Somewhere Along the Road", by the fabulous Celtic Folk band RUNA, has to be one of the most delightful contemporary Celtic albums I have listened to. It has a pleasant mixture of female and male vocals, along with superb instrumental accompaniament.
RUNA won Best Song in the World/Traditional category in the Independent Music Awards for the final track on "Somewhere Along the Road", entitled "Amhrán Mhuighinse". After listening to this exceptional album, it is my opinion they should have won Album of the Year! A year later RUNA won two awards in the Irish Music Awards for 2013: Top Group (US, IRE, EU, UK) and Top Traditional Group in a Pub, Festival, Concert.
The title track, "Somewhere Along the Road", is instrumental only and took me on a wonderful journey of years past travelling to and from different Celtic Festivals. RUNA is hoping to release their 4th CD this summer, 2014! I sure hope so because I will travel anywhere with RUNA!!!
