Time for Touching Home
Shay, Michael, Martin and Frances Black, along with sister Mary are members of Ireland's foremost family of song. Their work has been described by critics as 'exquisite', 'exhilarating' and 'nothing short of stunning'. This album was co-produced by sister Mary, and features lead tracks by the brothers and Frances, although Mary is also heard on many harmony vocals. Frances still lives in Ireland and remains a popular artist with tours and concerts annually in Ireland and Europe. Mary tours frequently outside Ireland but only has one live concerts planned in Ireland in 2003. The entire family, including their mother Patricia, feature prominently on Mary's DVD, released in May 2003. The brothers are regarded amongst the finest and most popular singers in Ireland. They are noted for their strong voices: Shay's is robust and hearty, Michael's a thrilling tenor, and Martin is known for his deep-chested counter harmonies. Their solos and close harmonies display an unalloyed joy in singing. Singing here with Frances gives us an album that is still remarkably popular and sells well in Ireland.
