Traditional Irish Music
Savannah, GA: Seldom Sober, Savannah's only Irish folk and traditional band, released a new studio album called Six Months in Confession. The album features thirteen tracks, including eight songs and five tune sets. The songs include traditional favorites and modern pieces, and many of the songs are paired with fiddle tunes. The tune sets include jigs, reels, polkas, and hornpipes.
Seldom Sober was formed in 2007 by Michael Corbett and Colleen Settle, both Savannah transplants. Michael is a native Bostonian who has played Irish music professionally since 1995 and was mentored by Liam Clancy and other legendary Irish musicians. He plays guitar and is the lead singer for Seldom Sober. Colleen hails from the New York City area and began playing Irish music professionally in 1978. She was a student of notable New York fiddlers Maureen Glynn and Rose Flannigan, and her influences include Frankie Gavin and Eileen Ivers. Seldom Sober performs at festivals, pubs, weddings, and special events throughout the region and has twice appeared as the opening act for Derek Warfield and The Young Wolfe Tones.
Michael said, “We recorded live in the studio with no overdubbing to give it an honest feel as though you're listening to us in a pub. We really love the mix of music we chose, and we're excited to bring our music to a larger audience. Our international attention on spotify has been inspirational to us.”
Six Months in Confession is available through the Seldom Sober website, where you can listen to samples and see live videos of Seldom Sober's recent performances. All booking inquiries should be directed to Michael at 508-207-7418.
