The Corrs


One of my favorite bands ever, the Corrs is an Irish family band, comprising Andrea (lead singer, tin whistle), Sharon (vocals, violin), Caroline (vocals, drums) & Jim (vocals, guitar). This talented foursome won many hearts over with their brand of traditional Irish music flavored with modern pop & rock hints. They write most of their songs & have earned rave reviews in Europe & the rest of the world.



The band has taken a hiatus after their last album "Home" to take care of their budding family but I'm looking forward to new material from the group. Among my favorite songs are:
  • Black is the Color (Home)
  • Radio (Unplugged)
  • Dreams (Talk On Corners)
  • So Young (In Blue)
  • Lough Erin Shore (instrumental)
  • Spancil Hill (Home)
  • Breathless (In Blue)
  • I Never Really Loved You Anyway (Talk On Corners)
  • Would You Be Happier (single)
The group is also known for their charitable efforts to ease world poverty & AIDS, & they actively promote world peace. If you're into easy-listening, traditional Irish music with a dash of originality, you can't go wrong with the Corrs :)
