Orla Fallon on Dear Green Place
Cindy Funk, host of Dear Green Place, was joined over the phone by Orla Fallon. Fallon will be stopping in Dayton at the Dayton Art Institute on her tour around the country.
Fallon is one of the original members of Celtic Women. Three years ago Fallon left the group to pursue her career as a solo artist. She chats with Funk about her four years with the group and it's incredible popularity in the United States and the world. They also delve into the direction Fallon's style and work has taken since leaving Celtic Women, taking many American songs and giving them her personal style. She sees it as a way to acknowledge the influences and connections she has had in the United States throughout her career.
