  • Description

    A new album from celebrated Irish band Patrick Street and perhaps their most profoundly traditional. Now in their third decade, Patrick Street are considered “the Irish supergroup�. “This decade’s answer to The Bothy Band and Planxty…� The Irish Times
    The new CD indicates the opening of an exciting new chapter for the group, as well as a change in one of its longest-running line-ups. Renowned accordion player Jackie Daly has decided to step down from the Street, and leaves us with some dynamic playing on the album. Meanwhile, respected multi-instrumentalist and newest member John Carty makes his Patrick Street recording debut teaming up here with Kevin Burke for some thrilling fiddle duets, his compelling canon of material drawing across time and borders. The quality of Andy Irvine’s singing, virtuoso playing on bouzouki and mandolin, and unique arrangements combine for some his best performances in years. The album also features Ged Foley’s skills in arranging and producing as well as his typically excellent guitar work and a striking new interpretation of the well-known Irish song “The Galway Shawl�. Jackie Daly offers his farewell to the group with two tracks, both prominently featuring his distinctive accordion style.
    Tracks: Na Ceannabháin Bhána (The Little Fair Canavans); Páidín O Raifeartaigh / Martin Wynne’s; Jackie Coleman’s; Malynn’s Fancy / Sergeant Small / Happy To Meet, Sorry To Part; Old Apples In Winter; Cherish The Ladies / Seanamhac Tube Station / The Rich Irish Lady / Down The Broom; The Gatehouse Maid; Mulvihill’s / The Galway Shawl / The Long Acre; �Cuz� Teahan’s / Erin Go Bragh / The Return Of Spring; The Mountain Path / The Boys Of Malin; John Stenson’s Nos. 1 & 2
