Like the Album
I recently got this album after having heard the groovy version of Whelan’s jig broadcast on LiveIreland.com. I first heard it two or three years ago, but LiveIreland is not very good about giving album information, so it’s taken this long to find it. At first I thought the album would be a drum kit and synthesizer, Riverdance version of Irish trad, but it’s got some great tracks, the first and seventh in particular, and I love the Flowers of Red Hill. Seems like traditional instrumentation (ullian pipes, button accordion, guitar) and playing, although pretty fast. Very nice button accordion playing to my whistle player’s ears.
