VT141CD They Sailed Away from Dublin Bay


 The explosion of Irish music in 1950s London included two influential players. One, from Tyrone, a trend-setter amongst banjo players who was renowned for his partnership with the late accordeon player Raymond Roland in the thriving Irish music scene at the White Hart and the Hibernian dance hall in Fulham Broadway. The other from Offaly with an original and animated style on the Paolo Soprani accordeon was meanwhile leading the resident ceili band at the Galtymore in Cricklewood.Liam Farrell and Joe Whelan became very much part of the current mainstream of Irish music in London, having played together for approaching two decades, on occasion with the London-born Roscommon flute player James Carty and with Reg Hall, who first vamped the piano with them back in the 1960s.

Dan Council's roaring fire and Johnny Leary's warm welcome fending off the October chill - it was for all the world like the house dances of long ago: the music loud and exuberant, boots battering the timber floor and the great people of Knocknagree pressed tightly around, urging players and dancers to ever greater heights of wild and elegant sound.

CICD 180 Reelin' in Tradition


Following their outstanding 2005 recording 'Notes from the Heart' on the Cló Iar-Chonnachta label, Mick Mulcahy and his daughters Louise (26) and Michelle (24) are back with a new album, Reelin’ in Tradition. If their first album was a revelation for the rhythmic and beautiful Mulcahy sound – as well as the virtuosity across several instruments of Michelle and Louise – Reelin’ in Tradition presents a new level of musicianship exploring their collective repertoire.Mick, Louise and Michelle Mulcahy regularly perform in Ireland the USA and have an unmistakeable, infectious sound. As Martin Hayes writes, ‘I first became familiar with the music of Mick Mulcahy from his first solo recording... I remember that both my father and I felt that his music had a great depth of feeling. That same feeling that first made an impression on me has been handed on to his daughters and continues all the way through this recording.'

CICD 155  The Kitchen Recordings


The title of the album says it all this recording of Irish music on banjo or bouzouki and button accordion was recorded in the O'Driscoll kitchen on a Sony four-track recorder. That is not, I hasten to add, a comment on the technical quality of the production, rather, it reflects what we have: the old tunes, admirably played out by two great players who know their way up and down and over the back of their instruments.

GLCD1026 Roll Away The Reel World


With the rich musical traditions of the Irish counties of Longford and Clare all around him and a family as engrossed with music as any in this country, James Keane was learning button accordion at an age when most children are learning to simply do up their buttons. Six years old is early to start playing music, even among various legends of players who started out as mere sprites. But by the age of ten, Keane was already something of a fixture on the Dublin music scene, following in the footsteps of many great players and sometimes even suffering them stepping on his feet because he was too little for them to see him. Players such as Seamus Ennis, Leo Rowome, Sonny Brogan, and Tommy Reck helped him get started on the course that would lead to an outstanding career in this genre. Here with his brother, of Cheftains fame, on fiddle.
