Hidden talent emerges with launch of Abigail's debut CD

A hidden talent has emerged from the slopes of Mount Eagle with the release of Abigail Joffe's first album.

The 10, self-penned tracks on the CD entitled 'Lay Me Down' present a rich and melodic voice that is well suited to the range from ballads to Dixieland style, recorded in this album.

She does not spare herself in the honesty of the lyrics which speak about personal themes from her life in West Kerry. 'The Growing Season', a melancholy track, displays the ease with which her voice covers an extensive vocal range.

Abigail, the daughter of South African parents was born in England and moved to West Kerry in 1993, where she raised her family in Ballintlea.

Her debut album will be launched during Feile na Bealtaine in Nellie Fred's, the Spa Road pub which has grown steadily in popularity as a music venue over the past year.
