Album Review : Moorland Winds by Sarah Copus

In the middle of the United States we have vast oceans of grass. We call them prairies. On the British Isles, the square mileage is a bit more subdued, but they have some, too. They are called moors. Expanses of grasslands that feed man and animal and provide a living. But in some places, they craft magik. Sarah Copus’ debut solo album is called Moorland Winds and she is that breath of…See More

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…
