Traditional Irish Music
This is the second track released from the new album by The Bonny Men. The album called Moyne Road featured in our Online Launch Series earlier in the year and it includes some original vocal material.
“Yes, the new album features five original songs” Barry Lyons said when we spoke to him in advance of this release. “We decided to embark on this as a project in 2013, writing and singing our own songs. We are a young band, and we want to sound young, fresh and creative.
It would have been easy for us to do covers of older folk songs, but instead we gave the composition of new material a higher priority. It's a learning curve, and one that we are getting better at as time progresses. At live gigs we still sing covers of folk songs, alongside our own material. For Moyne Road we thought we'd wear our hearts on our sleeves and release originals.” You can read our launch article here.
The album is now available to purchase on the band's website www.thebonnymen.ie
