Haven't heard, that would great.. I listened to his "Turf" cd last
night a bit, some good songs, one mentions the Burren, another
addresses the troubled north ("all the tears are the same" chorus)
Listened to Capercaillie's "Secret People", only a couple of trad-type
tunes one being a jig set, their sound different with synthesizers
and electric guitar, they seem to be moving away from trad instrumental
to a Clannad-like direction.. I listened to Wolfestone's latest,
first I've heard of them, interesting mix of electric and accoustic
(fiddle) and a bagpiper on a few tracks. Lastly, "Kerry Fiddles"
with Padraig o'Keefe and two other fiddlers, recordings not noise
free, originally (& currently) released by Topic Records, a good
mix of tunes anyway..
