With Anything That’s Part of You, Seoirse offers a tender vision of an America of lonely highways, restless longing and subtle innocence. Continental in richness and scale, it has hidden depths, surprising heights, and endless open spaces. It’s a timeless landscape where we can find and re-invent ourselves, but where we may get lost without a big dream or slender thread to anchor us to home and hope. Seoirse’s is a diverse heart-land: foolish love risked and lost; shallow love capriciously gambled on unreliable women; wishful love deceived, battered and betrayed; love outgrown; steady friendship; enduring love carried over great distances like a crumpled letter in a deep pocket over the heart.
With delicate, resonant picking, Seoirse guides us on a gentle journey from the haunting notes of early immigrant days a-roving in the Shenandoah Valley where Appalachian echoes linger on the wind. He waltzes us through Tennessee with a little twirl into Louisiana before setting us free to adventure on open roads that may lead anywhere. Seoirse offers us the sad secrets of shadowed prison cells, the illusory promises of roulette tables, the dreams of far beyond and mythic realms of possibility, from snowy Canada to the warmer Mexican south. Following the soothing promise of his voice, we are always brought safely out of darkness, back to home and heart.
