New ITM releases
I just got an e-mail from claddagh records, the ITM record label and record shop with the newest releases.
Here it is:
New Irish and related releases April 2002
An illustrated version of this bulletin will be found in the ‘New Releases’
section of our website at www.claddaghrecords.com
THE WIDE WORLD OVER. The Chieftains. A fortieth anniversary compilation,
this is in fact music from the later part of The Chieftains’ career. It
features a large number of guest artists - The Corrs, Sinead O’Connor, Diana
Krall, Los Lobos, Ziggy Marley and Linda Ronstadt among them.
THE MAPLE LEAF. Jimmy Noonan & Chris McGrath. The musicians are from Boston
and play flute and fiddle. They’re accomplished musicians and their choice
of tunes is excellent. They’re accompanied on guitar and bouzouki, and on
one selection they’re joined by Kevin Griffin of Doolin on banjo. This is a
really rip-roaring track. The whole album is as good as anything you’re
likely to hear in Ireland.
