Profile - John Carty

There is no doubt that John Carty can be described as one of our greatest living traditional musicians on the circuit at the moment. His roots go back a long way from an upbringing in London where he was born and where he began his musical adventure. His father was a member of the Glenside Ceili Band in London in the early '60's where they played extensively in London and the…

Kavan Donohoe - Kavan From Cavan

Kavan Donohoe - Kavan from Cavan

This has to be a first. A traditional album that starts off with Clocks by Coldplay. If you were unaware of who Coldplay were you would not pass much remarks such is the skill by which the set evolves into the better known Hunter's Purse.

For 19-year-old UCD student Kavan, this CD-launch will mark another milestone in his fast-moving…

Carmel Gunning - Corran Hill ( Music Traditions Review )

The topography of her native Sligo informs a large part of what Carmel Gunning does, and this disc is no exception.  As well as two self composed tunes, both named after local landmarks, three of the five songs in English are by local song makers.  Of these, two are place name songs, a genre which does not always earn plaudits for poetic quality.  However, while the sentiments of these two are fairly…

Josephine Marsh - Self Titled ( Alex Monaghan )



Another excellent debut album from another brilliant young Irish musician. Josephine Marsh is a box-player from County Clare. This is not another Sharon Shannon: Josephine's music doesn't have the attack of the first lady of Irish accordion. What it does have is a warmth and…
