Clíodhna Ní Aodáin Full Circle Presents ‘Cellos for Trees’

Following her highly successful albums “The Celtic Cello” and “Celtic Rituals”, award-winning Irish cellist Clíodhna Ní Aodáin presents her inspired single “Full Circle – Cellos for Trees”.

Cellos for Trees is a call to action to plant 10,000 trees, initiated by Clíodhna Ní Aodáin, founder of The Celtic Cello, and Brenda Neece, founder of The Cello Museum.

Their vision is to invite cellists from all over the world to participate in creating a beautiful music video project. Clíodhna Ní Aodáin, an advocate of environmental regeneration, has composed a multi-track cello piece called “Full Circle – Cellos for Trees” as a call to action to plant 10,000 trees.

There is a part for every cellist: Beginner – Intermediate – Advanced – Professional. Each cellist chooses a part to play, then makes a video of themselves playing under their favourite tree. The final video will combine these images to create a virtual forest of cellos and trees.

“Full Circle – Cellos for Trees” grows a musical tree from the seed to the roots to the trunk to the crown. Listeners will hear the magnificence of the tree as it grows. As the lyrical melodies build, the compelling groove drives deeper into the ground to support the glory of the tree as it emerges.

Clíodhna’s Roots

Drawing on her background in classical and improvised music, Clíodhna opens an acoustic portal to another realm. As a solo artist she melds contemporary and traditional styles to create a new genre that evokes the atmosphere of the Otherworld.

Connecting to Nature

The early Celtic people cherished Nature and had a sacred reverence for their environment, an awareness that sadly has become displaced in our modern culture. With the track “Full Circle – Cellos for Trees” released on Earth Day 2023, Clíodhna encourages her listeners to renew their appreciation of our precious earth.
