Slip into an Irish dream, where Celtic cultures and traditions mingle with classic American standards, with songs by Faith Marion Robinson on the Celtic Dreams album. Enlightening and ethereal rhythms, melodies and lyrics make every track unforgettable. Faith’s down to earth and sensual voice will help your appreciation of different cultures grow through the world of music. Her songs highlight the importance of love, family and peace in all aspects of life.  Accompanied by a strong ensemble featuring pipes, piano, guitar, strings and more, every performance on this album is strong and absorbing.

An expression of love, a story of peace, and a land of hope.  Experience the spirit of Ireland like never before as you’re transported through song to the magic of the Emerald Isle throughout the ages.  From Detroit’s historic Masonic Temple Chapel…A Celtic Awakening…with Faith Marion Robinson. Journey from the dramatic ceilings, rich carvings and Juliet balconies of the Masonic Temple Chapel, and awaken into a world of history, passion and timeless beauty, as we travel through time to uncover breathtaking Ireland as it’s existed throughout the ages. The musical journey begins in “New York City,” onstage in the Chapel, when vocalist and stage performer, Faith Marion Robinson mystically transports the audience to Ireland through visuals and song.  A Celtic Awakening delves into relationships of family and love, the spirit of Ireland and the hope of a world reconciled in peace.  Each of these points is carried throughout the musical selections representing themes of Irish emigration, the sorrowful famine, the troubles, and modern Ireland in its role as a world leader in peace.  Song selections were poignantly and purposefully chosen across multiple genres, connecting lyrics from cherished standards, Broadway, and pop songs to accomplish these themes. 

The Irish poet Thomas Moore once wrote: “You travel around the world to get what you need and then you come home to find it”. Having traveled many roads, this debut album is Faith’s musical journey home. The recording was produced by Ray McLaughlin and Faith and engineered by Seamus Cullinane at Roseland Studios in Moate, County West Meathe, Ireland.  The songs chosen for this album from both the US and Ireland represent a musical portal, expressing feelings of love, hearth, home and freedom.  It’s an album that embarks upon a musical journey which harks back to Faith’s youth and musical roots – a culmination and celebration of her personal experiences with her husband in Ireland, family, friends and songs she cares deeply about.  Expressing a deeper side of herself, Faith Marion Robinson hopes those feelings will touch the imagination of those that wish to listen.
