Joanie’s Cruise…..

An interesting CD this, which I found on eBay. It was a "freebie" promo CD given away with the "Sunday World" newspaper in 2012, to promote "Joannie Madden’s "Folk’n’Irish" Cruise" round the Caribbean, which seems a perfectly sensible way to pass 7 days in what would be winter here in Scotland. Don’t know how much it cost, though, probably excessive by most of our standards, - if I remember on Monday, I’ll ask Phil Cunningham how it went. A bit heavy on the songs, although they’re all very good - would have preferred more tune sets, however, what’s here is excellent. Here’s "who does what" :

1 - "Cherish The Ladies"
2 - Joannie Madden, Mary and Frances Black
3 - "The Pride Of New York"
4 - Michael Black
5 - Don Stiffe
6 - Joanie O’Madden and Gabriel O’Donohue
7 - Deirdre Connolly
8 - Phil Cunningham and Aly Bain
9 - Maura O’Connell and friends
10 - Eileen Ivers, Joanie Madden and Gabriel O’Donohue
11 - Hughie and Kathleen Boyle with Joanie Madden
12 - Donie Carroll
13 - Joe and Joanie Madden and Charlie Lennon
