The Irish Rovers – Upon a Shamrock Shore – CD

The Irish Rovers – Upon a Shamrock Shore – CD
(Universal Music) The release contains a slew of traditional and contemporary ‘Irish’ sounding tunes from a group of musicians who, despite their name, are not Irish. The Irish Rovers have been doing their thang for over 30 years now, and all of the tunes on this CD were recorded in the late ’60s early ’70s. The penny whistle and button accordion are prominent on many of the tunes, while the lyrics range from silly “Pigs Can’t Fly” to the serious “Lament for the Molly Maguires” to the pure fun “Mountain Tay”. If you’re looking for some good traditionally sounding Irish music then pick up this release from this bunch of Canadians. {Mite}
