Starlight is the third single release from the new album by Shane Ó Fearghail & The Host. A combination of reggae rhythms and grooves, with that distinctive Traditional Irish feel, Starlight mirrors a much older cultural collaboration; and the coming together of African and Celtic sounds. Or as Shane likes to call it, “Treggae”.
Starlight embodies the thinking behind this new record. An exploration of songs and styles, that stems from the writers own personal journey; to the root of the music. It represents a collective spirit, from past to present – not just in lyric but also in sound. When peoples from Ireland and Scotland were planted in the Caribbean mid 1600’s, they brought with them many of their traditions. Celtic music was just one. Starlight embraces that idea.
