"Irish songstress and Celtic chronicler Mairéid Sullivan... Possessing a rich, pure voice and a poet’s vision, ... Sullivan knows few musical boundaries and the genres on this locally produced record range from contemporary to traditional, from folk and pop to ambient new-age textures (provided by Sullivan’s partner, accomplished American guitarist, Ben Kettlewell). ...Sullivan’s music soothes and uplifts..."

electronic music pioneers

Electronic Music Pioneers
Artist Pro/ProMusic Press (2002)
click here for the preface - click here for the introduction
"Ben's book is distinctive because he has captured first-hand accounts from the leaders of a remarkable cultural frontier, one that will be less and less accessible as it fades into history. If you didn't share in the excitement of the time, this document will bring it to life for you!"
Suzanne Ciani (Composer, California, USA)
"This book really goes into depth revealing the early explorations of electronic music and it's inventors. There are wonderful interviews and stories of those responsible for the initial innovations and creation of the instruments and music that have been the foundation for the electronic music of today. Electronic Music Pioneers is a must for anyone who wants an understanding of those roots."
Michael Stearns (Baraka soundtrack composer)

"...Maireid Sullivan was the perfect choice to be the author of "Celtic Women in Music," ...Sullivan is a highly regarded vocalist with a particular interest in exploring and sustaining the philosophical roots of Celtic culture. As such, she has interacted with her subjects in a fashion that has an impressive degree of forthrightness, both on a personal and professional level....Sullivan's gentle but persistent questioning allowing her subjects to illuminate themselves in a fashion that inevitably provokes a desire to hear their music."
