    Irish-born, New York-based Susan McKeown is a singer/songwriter based in Irish folk and Gaelic history/tradition. While some interpret the more traditional (and more boisterous, in some cases) aspects of Irish music, McKeown mixes elements of jazz, Indian and North African music and the atmospheric, cosmopolitan sounds of Peter Gabriel, Laurie Anderson and Dead Can Dance into her sonic Irish stew. Her singing is melodious yet bittersweet in the vein of Delores Keane and Sandy Denny--sounding forever young and eons wise at the same time.
    BUSHES & BRIARS features instrumental contributions from a diverse cast of characters--jazz players Chris Speed and John Clark, as well as Irish folk pros Andy Irvine and Seamus Egan (the latter from the fine group Solas). If you like Enya or Clannad but find them too understated and airy, or if you wish Dead Can Dance did a Celtic album, check out BUSHES & BRIARS.
