If you enjoy some of the great Irish Favourites played on acoustic instruments fiddle, whistle, flute, guitars, and bodhran, you’ll get a lot from this album. Many folk tell us, they find it make the passing of an hour seem fleeting.
For those of you who like to know how things are done and why here a bit of info.
We wanted to get as close to live playing as we could. To do this we decided to get in an arc have a mic on each instrument and one on the vocals and go for it. For us we believe it worked the instruments blended and the whole thing sounded real.
So often with root music when each instrument is recorded separately the feeling and atmosphere of the song is lost. After a short while we all forgot about recording and just played and performed, we enjoyed doing it that way we hope you do too.
