Achill Lament

Story Behind The Song

The melody just came and at first I thought it was someone else's. It is similar to many but as far as I can tell is unique. As I realised it was taking on an Irish air I developed the various instruments to suit. The lead guitar provided a modern feel. The name comes from my boyhood days and a youth club visit to Achill Island in Co Mayo which I have never forgotten. A place of beauty where amethysts could be found along the shore.

This has a superb sound and instrumentation. It kind of reminds me of the soundtrack to the film Local Hero. You weren't sure of the the production Bob, but you nailed it. A truly uplifting piece of music.
