This follow-up to the critically acclaimed 'Down the Old Plank Road' issimply sensational.Again it demonstrates the musical links of Ireland andAmerica past and present.All 16 tracks,from the opener 'Raggle TaggleGypsy' by the young and very talented Nickel Creek thro' to Rosanne Cash'spowerful performance of 'The Lily of the West' makes this pairing of theworld's most famous Irish traditional band with American's favouritecountry stars a truly inspirational collaboration.
On the journey downthe 'old plank road' we meet Tim O'Brien giving a vibrant rendition of'Shady Grove' ; Ricky Skaggs' mournful gospel gem 'Talk About Suffering'and the ol'time tune 'The Girl I Left Behind' by John Prine.Listen out forthe guitar picking of the maestro Chet Atkins alongside the Chieftains on'Chief O'Neill's Hornpipe'.
A favourite tune of Scotland and Ireland;Robert Tannahill's 'Wild Mountain Thyme'is given a lush and gentle airingby the great Don Williams. With 'Moonshiner' Joe Ely convinces as 'arambler and a gambler and a long way from home' .
It seems great carehas gone into this CD in it's compilation and production and you canalmost imagine being sat among these artists while they sing and play justfor you. Great 'craic'!
