Eleanor explains what Yola means : ”the journey brought us to South Wexford, a strange, flat, uncompromising landscape of often high winds and driving rain, and sometimes, huge and beautiful skies. A land cut off by ocean, sea and for centuries by culture. So isolated for so long, that from the time of early invasion, it kept and developed its own dialect, a tangent of old and middle English mixed with Anglicized Irish. This dialect, now extinct apart from a few words still in use, was called Yola.”

Yola was produced by Eleanor and her pianist Brian Connor with co-writing credits going to Lloyd Cole and Henry Priestman (The Christians). An album of songs that are allowed to fend for themselves with a musical but uncluttered background brought about by the stylish playing of Liam Bradley on percussion, Eoghan O’Neil on bass and Brian Connor on piano.

(Hybrid SACD version also plays on all CD players)
