Traditional Irish Music
Tradconnect member Mike O' Laughlin has this month released an album which is now available on CD Baby. He invites you to " Feel, hear and experience the origins of Irish music, in the Irish (gaeilge) and English language. From 'old style' Acapella and traditional song, to St. Patricks Day favorites." We hope to get around to doing a review on it. In the meantime here is a track that has been made available on Soundcloud. It's called Skibbereen.
"Written shortly after the famine era, this is given to be the grandaddy of all famine and immigration songs of the period. A young boy asks why his father and friends speak so glowingly of Ireland - and why then, did they leave Ireland to settle elsewhere ? This song answers the question well for so many Irish who settled abroad." the album is available from www.cdbaby.com and you can also visit Mike on Soundcloud and at www.irishroots.com
