James Kibane – The Family Collection
James Kilbane along with Veritas Publication have released a collection of songs for families entitled The Family Collection. With a total of twenty specially chosen songs of faith and family, this collection combines favourites, including ‘There is a Place’, ‘The Wedding Song’ and ‘Faith of Our Fathers’, as well as Christian-based country like ‘Mama’s Roses’, ‘Going Home’ and ‘Richest Man on Earth’.
It is Kilbane’s thirteenth album and will coincide with the forthcoming World Meeting of Families, taking place in Dublin in 2018. Kilbane is intimately connected with family life himself – he is married to Christina since 1989 and they have two adult children.
James came to national attention in 2004 through Ireland’s talent search programme You’re a Star and has gone on to produce Christian, Gospel, Celtic Country and Irish folk music for a world wide audience. Miriam Gormally asked James about his work and inspiration for the album.
