In a turbulent, at times tumultuous, world, Áine Minogue (On-ya Mi-nohg), renowned Celtic harpist, vocalist, composer and arranger, has created another masterpiece of music to calm and soothe her listeners across the globe. 

With the release her fourteenth solo album entitled Celtic Meditation Music: In the Name of Stillness, Minogue weaves together ten mellifluous tracks that, in her words, create a space for "contemplative intention" and a "deepening of the spiritual experience." 

In the second of her albums entitled Celtic Meditation Music, Minogue's sublime songwriting is evident from first to final track, which features one vocal and nine instrumental tracks. They include Quiet Absence, Chant of Eternity, and Home of Belonging. Each one, she notes, a "combination of blessing, community, ritual, and intention that are hallmarks of Celtic meditations." 

Featuring her masterful play of the harp, and accompanied by gifted musicians on cello, keyboards, oboe, guitar, and clarinet, Minogue's stellar compositions settle, soften, and still ... all, as she says, "drawing from the well of Celtic mystical traditions." 

According to Minogue, the title of her new album, and its signature opening song, is borne of a love for the word “stillness” and its manifestations of solitude and silence. “Whether it’s used in meditation or contemplation,” Minogue says, “stillness helps to open or create more space for ‘something else to come in’ … more peace, clarity, balance, serenity, perspective. For me, stillness says it all.”

Born and raised in Borrisokane, Ireland, Aine Minogue discovered harp at the age of 12 while attending boarding school in County Galway. After completing school, she spent three years developing her incomparable talent as a harpist at Bunratty Castle, one of Ireland's most treasured landmarks and the consummate setting to accentuate the harp's emotional and lyrical connections to Irish history. 

Her music, in varying styles including Celtic, World, Folk, Spiritual and New Age, has contributed to numerous soundtracks and compilations with recordings for PBS, BMG, Virgin, Universal, and Warner Bros., as well as NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, and MTV. Many of her albums have topped Billboard Magazine’s World, New Age and Classical Charts for months at a time. 

Minogue has been nominated for several awards for her work as a record producer. Her recordings include Were You at the Rock, To Warm the Winter's Night, The Mysts of Time, Between the Worlds, Circle of the Sun, The Twilight Realm, Celtic Meditation Music, Celtic Pilgrimage, Celtic Lamentations, and Close Your Eyes, Love. She also has collaborated on a series of music videos with filmmaker Michael Yip entitled Winter, A Celtic Meditation. 

Recognized for her consummate skill and talent as a harpist, who earned a Master’s Degree in Traditional Irish Harp Performance from the University of Limerick in Ireland, Áine also possesses a voice that Billboard Magazine has described as one that “wraps around lyrics like a gently windblown satin sheet.”
