Track of the Week - Buttons & Bows / Oyster Island - 23rd August 2015

Our track of the week with over 250 plays over the last 7 days is from the new album by Buttons & Bows.  The Return of Spring is their first studio recording in 24 years. In keeping with their previous albums they present a variety of material that includes both traditional and contemporary. In the liner notes Séamus McGuire states that “we uncovered some treasures from the collections of Patrick Weston Joyce, George Petrie, Stephen Grier and John Gunn. We've included polkas and slides from Sliabh Luachra, traditional dance-tunes from the great Sligo-American fiddle masters, and a forgotten tune from the famous Doherty fiddlers which recently found its way home to Donegal from Western Australia. And from an entirely different musical genre, the 1947 Oscar-winning song Buttons & Bows (which prompted sound-engineer Philip Begley to give our band its name) was "rejigged" by Garry and Jackie with interesting results! The new music in this collection includes recent compositions by each member of the band, reflecting a wide range of musical influences and styles.”

The album is now available to purchase from the Buttons & Bows website and can be Downloaded by clicking on the link below.
