Slainte Mhath’s (pronounced Slawncha Va) newest CD, "Va" is one of the best fusion celtic-rock CD’s I’ve heard. They are the most amazing gorup to hear in concert! I had the oppourtunity to hear them and play sessions with them at the Winnipeg Folk Festival in the summer of 2003. The instrumentation is Fiddle(s), Guitars, Percussion, Bodhran, Piano/keyboard, Bagpipes (all kinds). The also have a CD out called "Slainte Mhath". An amazing group of young musicians hailing from Cape Breton and Prince Edward Island, Canada! Check their stuff out!

Right, indeed! A fine group , with lots to keep both the trad and mod ears tuned…. all Scots and Irish roots updated handsomely (not obscured)… of note, a rockin’ little jig by Canadian Paul Cranford called the "Invisible Immigrant" slipping smoothly into Garrett Barry’s… Devil in the Kitchen with rock and roll piano/guitar… fine playing and fun throughout !
