You can cast aside any doubts about the integrity of the Celtic tradition being interpreted by a band who live closer to Prague than Skibereen. They are obviously steeped in the tradition and have been playing for eighteen years, ‘Wish’ is their sixth album and is ‘a return to purer, traditional instrumentation in comparison with the previous 2 albums’.
The fundamental core of all ‘Celtic’ music is here - by turns it makes you break out in a huge grin and want to get to your feet whilst offering quietly introspective tunes and songs for contemplation. Reels, jigs and beautiful ballads make up the fifteen tracks on the album, the reels in particular shine out with flute, whistles and banjo giving them an irresistible beat.
Play it loud and open the windows.
