Sibéal Ní Chasaide (Cassidy in English), a singer bringing the centuries-old Irish style of sean-nós singing to the world via her debut CD on Decca Records.

Patrick Cassidy – a renowned composer - asked Sibéal to perform the vocals for a piece he wrote to accompany Patrick Pearse's famous 1912 poem ‘Mise Éire’. Her powerfully emotive live performance with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, at an event commemorating the 1916 centenary, established her as a national treasure and led to her performing around the country, for audiences that included the President.
