The Corrs are the Pride of Ireland.

They are a traditional Irish pop-rock group whose music has Celtic roots.

The family band is made up of 4 siblings : 3 sisters, Andrea, Sharon, Caroline and 1 brother, Jim. They created their band 19 years ago, in 1990, in Dundalk, which is 50 miles to the north of Dublin.

The Corrs write their own songs. The originality of their music comes from the unique blend of traditional Irish music and modern pop-rock.


The Corrs were always a very musical family. Their parents were musicians and so their 4 children grew up surrounded by music of all kinds.
They have sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
If you've enjoyed the song which we listened to and studied in class, here is the video recorded on Saint Patrick's day at the Royal Albert Hall.


Andrea Corr is the lead singer but she sometimes plays a musical instrument.
  What kind of musical instrument can she play ? (see Dreams, Only when I sleep or Haste to the wedding for a hint ).

Great job, Jérémie ! I agree. Andrea Corr plays the tin whistle.

She plays recorder

Well, she plays the flute or recorder but hers is a typical one from Ireland. We talked about it when we studied Ireland and its Celtic supernatural creatures last year. Do you remember its name ?
