This review is from: Down The Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions (Audio CD)
I found this album on YouTube while searching for the music/words for something different and while I have liked folk music for years I had never come across this particular group before. As I am also a big fan of Pipe music I stopped and listened to as much of these as I could find. :)
Whatever the comments from 'real' Irish music fans (especially those on YouTube) about how this group cheapens the whole 'Irish' music genre. I have to say the blend here is wonderful, easy to listen to (with the exception of one track*) and most of all enlightening. Well for me as I hadn't really heard anything like this before...
Oh and I plan on getting the Further Down the Old Plank Road as soon as I have some spare cash... :)
*Dark as a Dungeon - Which I loathe with a passion in all the versions I have heard so far... (Not to detract from the rest of the album)...
