Travelling Home


Folk Roots

'Back to Donegal' is a Bacchic delight of banjo, fiddle, Uillean pipe and spoons-filled Irish tunes. A joyous travelogue. (A high energy 'Coney Island') And there's social criticism that's not detached and dogmatic. Rather, he breathes a passionate angry fire into songs about the ruin and rot of our country..(the Rhumba-esque 'Defending our Homes') or racism (a hearty adaption of Broonzy's Black Brown and White) And then there's a more light -hearted edge. 'Compatability' a chirpy duet, is a witty analysis of a relationship. Soulful, passionate and transcendent. A blinder of a record..
