Steve Vai with Celtic singer Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin

Guitar legend Steve Vai records Pádraigín’s Mullach a’ tSí as 7th song on new CD ‘The Story of Light’

Renowned guitarist Steve Vai has recorded a new track inspired by Pádraigín’s composition for ‘Mullach a’ tSí’.

I have to say how absolutely moved I have been through the years whenever I would listen to your astounding version of ‘Mullach a’ tSí’. I decided to record a version of that song with the main melody being played on the electric guitar. It is inspired by your vocal performance. I would love to send it to you when I am done. I very much hope to record something with you someday.
— Steve Vai
