Subject: PLEASE RECOMMEND SOME ARTISTS/ALBUMS!
From: Guy Hoyle (ghoyle1@airmail.net)
Date: 12 Jan 00 - 05:24 PM

Hello,

The North Texas Irish Festival (www.ntif.org) will be coming to town in early March, and I'll have the opportunity to seriously beef up my skimpy collection of celtic music. However, I always feel overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of CDs available there; I never know what I should be looking for, so I thought I'd turn to this area for some suggestions.

I've got some of the Clancys and the Makems' recordings, as well as a smattering of Altan, Gaelic Storm, Connie Dover, Stan Rogers, a couple of Chieftains CDs, even a Pogues recording. I have some others, but that should give you an idea of the level of my familiarity with the music. I have quite a few recordings of local bands and renfaire bands as well.

What would you recommend as "must have" albums or artists? What am I missing? I'd hate to have to rely on my own uninformed opinion for selections, so please feel free to tell me about your personal favorites.

Thanks in advance!

Guy

Hi There Guy - I'll be there too. My favorite bands that have appeared there in the past are Solas , Dervish and Patrick Street. The SCMA booth if I'm not mistaken will feature artists that are performing at the current festival. But some of the other booths will feature other artists. I'll try to E-mail you when I have more time. Elderly or Barnes and Nobel are other good resources for these groups.

Gotta' agree with Alan, particularly Planxty's first album. More recently Solas' "The Words that Remain" and from a few years back Daithi Sproule's "Heart Made of Glass", also have to consider "Andy Irvine and Paul Brady" essential, all submitted IMHO...

I work crew for the Washington (DC) Irish Festival every year, and have had a chance to hear some great music over the years. Here are some of my favorite Irish musicians...

Bands: the originators of the high energy Irish band style of music were Planxty and The Bothy Band. Green Linnet has re-released most of Bothy Band's albums - try "Best of..." or "Old Hag You Have Killed Me". Planxty's stuff has been been re-released on Shanachie. My two favorites are "The Woman I Loved So Well" and "After the Break".

Look for bands or singers accompanied by or produced by Donal Lunny, an instrumentalist (mostly bouzouki) who was the driving force behind Bothy Band, Planxty, Moving Hearts and other bands, and has good taste in who he accompanies.

Patrick Street followed these groups (they were originally billed as the "Irish All-Stars) - I like their first two albums best, "Patrick Street" and "Patrick Street #2", both on Green Linnet.

Solas is another, younger supergroup - try "Solas" or "Sunny Spells & Scattered Showers" on Shanachie.

My favorite "new" hot bands this past year were Lunasa' and Mary Jane Lamond (from Cape Breton) - both their CDs were on small labels.

Singers - look for any of Dolores Keane's recordings, with or without John Faulkner - my favorite is "Broken-hearted I'll Wander" (Green Linnet)

"Andy Irvine and Paul Brady", re-released on Green Linnet, is a masterpiece of songs and tunes with great guitar/bouzouki accompaniments. Never mind that they look like Charles Manson and Squeaky Fromm in the cover photo...

Frank Harte has two great CD's of traditional songs and ballads (with Donal Lunny), "Daybreak and a Candle End" and "The First Year of Liberty"

Karen Casey's (formerly of Solas) first solo album is a knockout - she has a wonderful, clear voice to die for...

Folk-rock: Mary Jane Lamond, Kips Bay Ceili Band, Eileen Ivers (fiddler from Riverdance)

I could go on - this list doesn't include my favorite fiddlers (Martin Hayes, Kevin Burke, Johnny Cunningham) or box players (Phil Cunningham, John Whelan, Joe Burke) or guitarists (Tony MacManus, Pierre Bensusan, Paul Brady, Martin Simpson)...but you probably don't have that much money!

2 suggestions...

Grab almost anything by "The Irish Decendants" except "Livin' on the Edge".. they are a fantastic Canadian band...

And avoid another Canadian band like the plague... a band called "Great Big Sea".. their first, self titled album is o.k... but the rest of it is junk...

Kat said it so succinctly...Battlefield Band! (Always my first recommendation!) :-) Beyond them... it depends on what sorts of music and instruments you favor, as to which artists you might most enjoy. For fiddle I recommend John McCusker, Natalie MacMaster,Brian McNeill, Or the Celtic Fiddle Festival recording(s), For Accordian I recommend Sharon Shannon, for vocals Kate Rusby, Cathie Ryan,for Irish flute- Seamus Tansey...for sheer gorgeous song writing I would suggest Andy M. Stewart. For combinations of "all of the above" traits, Cherish the Ladies,Solas,Capercaillie, etc. - Gaelic Storm has a new one that's lots of fun (It's called "Herding Cats") There's also a band called Leahy (out of Canada I believe) nine brothers and sisters together, and the fiddler (Donnell Leahy) is amazing.There's also a great Irish fellow by the name of Gerry Timlin, that I had the pleasure of meeting at an Irish festival two years ago - he does some great interpretations of folks like Stan Rogers, and lots of traditionals. If available, also, I would strongly recomend collections like the Celtophile series of CDs, or the Green Linnet sampler CDs...these are collections of tracks by many different artists, and is a great way to hear lots of different people and decide what you like most and would like to hear more of. Have a great time! :-)

As far as bands are concerned, I always liked Planxty very much. If you want to investigate the ballad groups, you could do no better than the rough and ready Dubliners.

The Brady & Irvine recording mentioned above is masterful.

If you would like to hear something more traditional (as opposed to neo-traditional) you might like Frank Harte's 'Daybreak and the Candle End' as mentioned above. A fine recording of fiddlers is Denis Murphy & Julia Clifford's "Star Above the Garter."

Here are a couple you might not hear from other Mudcatters...

Skylark - Claddagh Records and Trian - Green Linnet

All the best,
Dan

Nobodies mentioned The Poozies yet. Well worth checking out. And then theres the undisputed king of Scottish traditional music, Dick Gaughan. Espescially his records Kist of Gold and Handfull of Earth. If Celtic includes English, then get hold of Penguins Eggs by Nic Jones and youve got the best the best english traditional record - ever!

Auxiris, I found "Lead the Knave" available at www.taramusic.com/artybg.htm or, here.

Also, found this in regards to "McGlynn's Fancy". Info is a little old, but maybe it still holds true? website for this was www.ceolas.org/pub/Claddagh/Aug or, this.

"NEWSLETTER AUGUST 1994

Retail and international mail-order.

McGlynn's fancy: Arty McGlynn. BERCD011.
Re-issue of the great acoustic guitar album which has been unavailable for some years. For the first time on CD, this is a beautiful collection of dance tunes, pieces and a couple of local songs."

Hope this is helpful.

dear katlaughing; Thank you ever so much for the reference concerning "McGlynn's Fancy" being re-issued on CD. The only copy I was able to find the last time I was in Ireland some years ago was a cassette that I nearly tore out of some poor man's hand as he put it back in the tape rack (if by chance he sees this, I hope he'll forgive me). I've been terrified that it might break someday and now I can obtain a CD from which I can make a new tape to carry around in the car. I've got the two CDs Arty and Nollaig made together and am waiting to see what they'll record next. . .

cheers, Auxiris

I'll second the recommendation for Flook!'s Flatfish album, and I'd place their earlier "Live" album above most of what's been listed here . .

If you want songs then the best Irish album EVER is Tommas Lynch's "Crux of the Catalogue" - as well as being excellent there's also far more variety on it than on most recording (in any genre).

Also - look out for anything by Ron Kavanah . . "Songs of rebelion and reconcilliation" is a double CD at less than single CD price but is - musically - less interesting than most of his other recordings.

And if you ever get the chance to catch Kavanah, Neill, Lynch and Luparri then kill to get there, or to buy the album.

As for Clannad - the early stuff is great; innovative treatment of trad. music, with good jazz influences. But the recent stuff is wishy-washy bland new-age wallpaper music (admitedly the best of that depressing genre, but neverthe less . . )

If your Celtic tastes extend beyond Ireland then another "must" is "Opus Blue" by Catriona Macdonald and Ian Lowthian.

Arcady, Dervish, Altan, Beginish, Danu (made my head spin down @ Washington Irish Fest 99), Martin Hayes(with or without Dennis Cahill),Mick Moloney et. al., Nomos(who provided me with one of the most embarassing times of my life when I took a bodhran workshop with Frank Torpey), Patrick Street, Bothy Band, Kevin Burke's live solo CD, Paddy Keenan,Molloy Brady and Peoples, and finally, Mike and Mary Rafferty (the latter of Cherish the Ladies fame) do some stunning traditional East Galway stuff. I also whole-heartedly recommend seeing any of these musicians live if you get the chance. Another nobody mentioned is Moving Cloud. They have two decent CDs but you really must see them live. It all depends on what your looking for. I'm a bit of a traditionalist to whom Eileen Ivers and Solas sounds like nails on a chalkboard, but some people like them a lot. SLan, Rich

Another vote for Solas, and Karan Casey, and Capercaillie (Scottish like some of the other bands named above ie Battlefield Band). Lunasa are also wonderful (all instrumental though)....

Gaelic Storm (first CD) is also great fun, (they were the Irish band in the Titanic movie)... 2nd CD is good although I prefer the first...

If you want something a bit weirder try the Afro Celt Sound System, (african rhythms mixed with Irish instruments)... you'll either love it or hate it!
