Jens Kommnick Review

Jens Kommnick Redwood Independent ReleaseThe Celtic Diaspora Knows No BoundsA couple of decades ago a German boy had a love affair that none could have predicted. It was German born acoustic guitarist Jens Kommnick and he fell in love with Celtic music. I know how he feels. Luckily, the affair has blossomed into a beautiful relationship, for Jens’ six-string music is absolutely sublime. His remarkable self-taught talents are the result of exploration into not only the Celtic genre, but also…See More

Album Review : Burning Briget Cleary / Pressed For Time

I put on the uniquely named Burning Bridget Cleary album, Pressed For Time, and I think, these kids just got off the boat from the Old Sod and are trying to make it in America. Well, this energetic and talented quartet is from Philadelphia and recently returned from playing in Ireland. The irony of it all is not lost on me. The band offers tight harmonies and lively performances of traditional and…See More

Film Review - Living The Tradition / Ilse de Ziah & Maarten Roos

It is not often that one of my favorite genres of music comes with pictures, but in this case, Ilse de Ziah & Maarten Roos have provided just that in their remarkable documentary film, Living the Tradition, an enchanting journey into old Irish airs. Ilse de Ziah is a popular cellist, composer, and performer living…See More

Album Review - Erwilian / Light from Darkness

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 15:00 0 Comments

I have to say I was disappointed after hearing Erwilian’s new album, Light from Darkness. I was disappointed that I had not heard of their previous two albums, Renovata and Midwinter’s Night. This mostly acoustic thirteen-track album is completely refreshing. I read with amusement other’s comparisons of Erwilian’s…
