CD Reviews

An Irish music fan's #1 band
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Spectacular album - a perfect mix of ballads and jigs. Betsy's voice is wonderful on this album, especially in my favorite, "Lost Jimmy Whelan." Hope to see them in O'Flaherty's again some time soon!"
Harmonizing blend of Irish music with jig and reel sets
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Betsy McGovern and Patrick O'Flaherty have planted their Irish roots firmly into New Orleans' rich soil. This CD is not to be lumped in with some of the Celti-trash that has creeped in amongst the top 10. This is music with a deep heart, although touches of that old Irish humor can be found (track 16, "Elvis"). With guitar, bass, mandolin, bodhran, harmonica, shruti box, and more, they weave melodies - some sad, some upbeat - all rich and beautiful. Betsy McGovern's voice is clear and strong, and her sweet high notes are so pleasing to the ear ("When I Sing About You"). "Lover's Last Chance" tells about an old house that is filled with the memories of its inhabitants' yearnings... Betsy's voice is haunting! "All Around My Hat" and the jigs and reels have my middle school students literally bopping and skipping around the classroom whenever we listen to it during our creative writing classes. "If music be the food of love, play on!" The Poor Clares are food for the soul."
