Refreshing & Highly Spirited Music
Erika Borsos | Gulf Coast of FL, USA | 03/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the first traditional Irish groups I discovered and has remained my #1 favorite ever since. I dare say, if I had to select only one Irish CD to represent the joy and spirit of this country, this would be that CD. The music created by the instruments, Uillean pipes, accordion, whistles, flute, clarinet, harp, keyboard, percussion, guitar, bouzouki, and vocals, both male and female, are difficult to describe in words. It makes me think of "River Dance", the show, which may well have taken a few lessons from "Sean Nua". The milieu and ambience of this famous production often resembles the music on this CD. There are jigs, reels, highly evocative and soul searching melodies and songs, as well as a few romping and raucously amusing music. I am at a loss for superlatives to describe just how much this music lifts my spirits. This is definitely happy music and listening to it will revitalize the listener. This music can make anyone listening feel the experience described in, track #1 a) "Happy to Meet, Sorry to Part", b) Cliffs of Mohr, c) Eaves Dropper". Some other highly enjoyable tunes are, #5, O' Ro' Song of the Sea, a very sensitive and ethereal tune, and #6, a) The Tabby Reel, b) Young Joe -- a dynamic and energetic combo. If happy, "feel good" music is what you are after ... go no farther than this CD. It is all here. My highest recommendations. Erika Borsos (erikab93)"
