Nights in Shanaglish Reunion on 6th July 2013

Its nice to revisit some albums that we have reviewed over the last while and watch as they progress through launches, audio files becoming available etc.  One album from last year that was interesting and different was Nights in Shanaglish 

The idea of live music from a well known pub is not so new.  However in this instance the musicians involved sought to really capture the essence of a live session, portraying as it does rural life in Ireland.  For anyone that has been to one of these more rounded sessions you will know that they are not simply gatherings of purists playing only traditional music.  The best ones incorporate a lot more.  Their guiding ethos is one of raw, down to earth traditional Irish music, songs, stories and recitations. Nights in Shanaglish also steps beyond the simple CD format and is a full multimedia project which consists of a gatefold vinyl, a DVD documentary on local history and folklore, interviews with local people, footage of the natural landscape as well as the live recording in action.  The idea came from Vincey Keehan and Paddy Egan, regulars at the sessions in Whelan's Pub in Shanaglish, south Galway where the recording took place. It is therefore a community project involving many local people from south Galway and north Clare and has been independently directed and produced by Vincey and Paddy. Read full review.

Performers from the Nights in Shanaglish album will be over from San Francisco and Galway to meet up in Egans of Parkbridge, Shillelagh, Co. Wicklow on July 6th at 4pm.  So check out the website and the pub and if you are in the area it should be a good reunion
