About two years ago during my first and only trip to Ireland, we went into a Pub in Cork called, I think, The Black Bush located I believe on Oliver Plunkett Street or something very close to that. If I inadvertently misspell or damage a name, no disrespect. I'm operating from memory.
Anyway, we were more than a little impressed by a progressive folk group called Finnegan's Wake. Their music was very insistent that everyone listen and everyone did. As I have said many times since, their music was so dominant and interpretative that it made me feel for the first time that I was truly Irish.
Now, I'm coming back to Ireland next month but I can't find out anything about Finnegan's Wake. Did they disband? Change their name? Perhaps I overrated them, but I think not. Any information about this group will be much appreciated.
