The McDonald Family Singers announce their new album, Beneath the Dove.
Dylan shares 5 original songs about life, loss and love on his first EP.
Inspired by the everyday rhythms of marriage and family life with 12 children, Beneath the Dove is mostly solo acoustic guitar and vocals with the rest of the family adding fiddle, rhythm guitar, and backup vocals on 2 tracks.
“We have been given a love for a lifetime.
And all of our living has lifted us and drawn us
To the Wood where we rest:
Because we share a grace-filled love,
Because we dared the road beneath the dove.”
~ from the song, “Beneath the Dove”

The boys performed many of these selections at the May 2012 Mid-Atlantic Fleadh (Irish music competition), where they qualified to compete at the August 2012 All-Ireland Fleadh. They recorded this CD to help raise the funds needed to go to Ireland for that contest.
Thank you for your support!
We all hope you enjoy this music as much as they enjoy playing it.
