Síle & friends join forces for Children this Christmas!

Maybe This Christmas

Síle Seoige “MAYBE THIS CHRISTMAS” featuring The Palestrina Choir,

The St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral Girls Choir & the Famous Faces Choir.

Release date: Friday December 5th 2014.

Available to preorder on iTunes from November 28th and will be available as a CD single in music retailers

 

As an ambassador for Make A Wish Ireland and a supporter of Childline, Síle Seoige not only wanted to make a difference but do something different, and quite unexpected.

Síle loves to sing and as Christmas is around the corner she thought why not record a Christmas single to try and raise funds for both charities! Síle enlisted the help of Irish songwriter Brian Flanagan and producer Billy Farrell to help put together a very special Christmas song that she has taken the lead vocals in. Pulled together in just three weeks from the original idea, Síle and the team have done it!

“The support and goodwill from people has been truly heartwarming…from the talent on the production side to the famous faces who are lending their profile and voices to this” says Síle. And speaking of the famous faces…some of Ireland’s most well known singers, sports people, TV and film stars along with personalities came together one November evening to give their voices to “Maybe This Christmas.”

The waiting list for Make A Wish Ireland to grant wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions stands at just over 200. Childline is in danger of closing their nighttime service from January unless they raise 1 million euro between now and the end of the year. “Maybe this Christmas” is being released to raise monies for both charities at this special time of year.

Susan O’Dwyer, Chief Executive Make-A-Wish Ireland said “We cannot thank Síle Seoige, Brian Flanagan and all the amazing people behind this fundraising effort enough for their commitment and support. The monies raised from the sale of this single will make a significant difference to this wonderful charity and enable us to create extraordinary moments for some truly brave children.”

A spokesperson for Childline said “The ISPCC are delighted that Síle Seoige and Friends have come together to support Childline with this wonderful song. Without this kind of support Childline could not continue to provide services to children and teenagers all over Ireland”

2 million YouTube hits in a week last year for a song they arranged, SEO LINN now announce their new original single – D’Aon Ghuth Amháin!

Seo Linn D’Aon Ghuth Amháin – new original single out Nov. 14th ’14.

 

Edit_03

Keith, Stiofán, Jenny, Daithí, Kevin, Conor and Cathal (Seo Linn) are multi instrumentalists with a mission playing modern trad with a large pop/dance influence meshing strong straight forward percussion beats and dance melodies with trad instruments.

Last year they clocked in over 2 million YouTube hits in just over a week with their stunning Irish version arrangement of TG Lurgan V Avicii – Wake Me Up and a whirlwind winter of TV appearances and international tour dates

D’Aon Ghuth Amháin means Of One Voice and is Seo Linn’s new single out November 14th 2014

The song describes how thousands of voices united and singing in unison are more powerful and lasting than individual voices which stand-alone. It underscores how this coming together of people and the uniting of voices is the way which Ireland has, is, and will continue to safeguard her beautiful native language, An Ghaeilge, against extinction.

In this way An Ghaeilge, which is a fundamental part of the Irish heritage and culture, has survived through almost impossible historical circumstances, because when the times got tough the Gael have always come together ‘of one voice’ to ensure the continuity of the language. The lyrics of this song acknowledge this great Irish achievement, and tell us to continue to birth and inspire new life for our native Irish language, as we shape the future of our country and native tongue – encouraging creativity and singing together in the language shaped by the Irish landscape, culture and mindset – ag canadh, d’aon ghuth amháin.

2014 has been busy for Seo Linn with a brace of sold out shows all over the country and an album in production preceded by the single “D’Aon Ghuth Amháin”.

Seo Linn are:

Keith: Djembé and lead vocalist/harmony.

Stiofán: Guitar and lead vocalist/harmony.

Jenny: Flute/whistle and lead vocalist/harmony.

Daithí: Keyboard and mandolin and lead vocalist/harmony.

Kevin: Button accordion & Backing vocals.

Cathal: Rhythm guitar/bass

Conor: Percussion

Seo Linn D’Aon Ghuth Amháin – singil nuachumtha ar fáil ar an 14ú Samh. ’14.

Ceoltóirí il-uirlisí is ea Keith, Stiofán, Jenny, Daithí, Kevin, Conor agus Cathal (Seo Linn) a bhfuil sé mar mhisean acu ceol traidisiúnta nua-aimseartha a sheinm a bhfuil tionchar mór pop/damhsa ann, ag nascadh snagbhuillí láidre agus tiúineanna damhsa le huirlisí traidisiúnta.

Anuraidh fuair siad breis agus 2 mhilliún amas ar YouTube i mbeagán de bhreis ar sheachtain lena leagan iontach Gaeilge de TG Lurgan V Avicii – Wake Me Up, agus bhí fuadar fúthu i rith an gheimhridh ar chláir theilifíse agus ar thurais idirnáisiúnta.

Is é D’Aon Ghuth Amháin an singil nua atá ag Seo Linn agus beidh sé á sheoladh ar an 14ú Samhain 2014

Insíonn an t-amhrán go bhfuil na mílte glór, aontaithe agus ag canadh le chéile, níos cumhachtaí agus níos buaine ná glórtha aonair ag canadh astu féin. Dearbhaíonn sé gurb é an teacht le chéile seo agus aontú na nglórtha an bealach a bhí, atá agus a bheidh ag Éire lena teanga álainn dúchais Ghaeilge a chosaint ón díothú.

Ar an dóigh sin atá an Ghaeilge, ar cuid bhunúsach í d’oidhreacht agus de chultúr na hÉireann, tagtha slán trí chúinsí stairiúla a bhí beagnach dosháraithe, mar ariamh anall nuair a tháinig an crú ar an tairne tháinig na Gaeil le chéile ‘mar aon ghuth amháin, chun buaine na teanga a chinntiú. Tugann liricí an amhráin seo aitheantas don éacht Éireannach seo, agus deir siad linn leanúint orainn a bheith ag cur bunús agus beatha nua inár dteanga dhúchais Ghaeilge agus sinn ag múnlú todhchaí ár dtíre agus ár dteanga – ag spreagadh na cruthaitheachta agus ag canadh le chéile sa teanga atá cruthaithe ag tírdhreach, cultúr agus meon Éireannach – ag canadh, d’aon ghuth amháin.

Bliain chruógach ab ea 2014 do Seo Linn a raibh sraith seónna lán go doras acu ar fud na tíre agus albam á chur i dtoll a chéile acu a bhfuil an singil “D’Aon Ghuth Amháin” mar réamhtheachtaí aige.

Baill Seo Linn:

Keith: Djembé agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Stiofán: Giotár agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Jenny: Fliúit/feadóg agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Daithí: Méarchlár, maindilín agus príomhamhránaí/armóin.

Kevin: Cairdín & amhránaíocht chúnta.

Cathal: Giotár rithime/dord

Conor: Uirlisí Cnagtha
