Our music is a blend of the Irish harps, guitar, flute and Aines vocals and we hope to have achieved a range of sounds from the mellow tones of harp instrumentals to the haunting songs of the Irish and Scottish traditions.

In 2010 we recorded a selection of the many songs and tunes we have played over the last couple of years and following many requests to make the music available on CD we released our debut album ‘The Patience Family’ – Here at Last.  Since making the CD available in mid December we have been greatly encouraged by the very positive feedback we have received and have now made the album available for sale on the website.

We have included some samples from the CD below and would be delighted to hear from you if you would like to leave comments in the ‘Contact Us’ section.

    Dear Aine & James,

    I was playing alto sax at Stormont last night and wanted to say how much I enjoyed your playing and singing. I took up the harp a couple of months ago and am enjoying learning although am having real difficulty affording the harp hire so am trying to save for my own now! Have you guys got a Facebook page? Do you come from Belfast? I studied the harp music of Edward Bunting while doing my Masters in Music, which involved tracing the Bunting manuscripts in the Irish Traditional Archive in Dublin. It inspired me to learn to play. I play tin whistle at my church where we sometimes have a folk group.
