I have only listened to the album two or three times so far but there are some great trad tracks as well as some that may be a bit too much jazz/fusion for many.
This is closer to “Fused” than to McGoldrick’s other offerings.
Track 7’s vocals just don’t fit in as far as I am concerned but all the other tracks will get transferred to my MP3 player.
I tried listening to this at a cd shop several days ago, but I couldn’t find any trad tracks. Twas fun to listen to though.
Maybe the trad tracks are a little bent in places but still very recognisable trad playing of the melody and trad tunes.
best cd ever.
dont be afraid of some drums and bass.
a lot of you are living in the past
mcgoldrick is a legend.!!!!!!!!!
Best cd ever
i agree with fused. This is another quality product from Michael mc goldrick. there are Some great tunes on there and the arangement is fantastic
I have always regarded Fused as my favourite album so I had high expectations of Wired. I haven’t been disappointed and I enjoy the mix of traditional and more modern tunes and arrangements. I like track 7 but I must admit that I was a little puzzled when I first heard it in the car.
McGoldrick’s playing is once again sublime and I do feel that his arrangements and playing is far more accessible than the sort of stuff you hear from others. I hope that Wired is listened to by a wider audience as it deserved to be appreciated.
I posted this and I like it more every time I listen to it. It has been in my car CD player constantly for over one week.
Still in my car 2
the cd is still in my car aswell and will remain there for some time he is playing @ the baltic in gatehead on friday 28th october as part of womex should be good
Track 5 2nd tune.
I am assuming that the beach in question is our own local beach here in the west of Oz. McG went here for a swim on the morning after his last gig down here in Perth. To get a feel for the tune check out the photos:
Awesome album, but who wrote…
I downloaded this from tradtunes.com, and as great a site as it is, they don’t give you any liner note information… Who wrote The Edinburgh Rock? Best new tune I’ve heard in a long time!
acdy2003 - see
It says the tune was written by Scottish Piper David Lim.
I love it too (the album and the tune) and I’m not even a flute player.
I haven’t seen him in years, but Dave Lim, last time I met him was an uilleann piper, and as far as I know is neither him nor his instrument are Scottish.
David Lim is ‘Mancunian’ as far as I know. See this site which even has a photo of the man:
And it appears he is still a piper (uilleann).
So I see, I was just regurgitating what it said on the other page.
