Review: “The Bright Shining Clear” by The Rambling Sailors

Rambling Sailors is a folk duo who have a musical passion for the mariner life.  They have combined traditional Celtic songs of the sea and some new tunes that flow together so well it is difficult to discern which is which. Gregg & Susan Csikos have been very active with their music individually and have now come together to share that experience in these ballads and tales of the seas.  Susan actually spent time on the Schooner ships in Maine performing her songs.  Gregg  has over a decade of Ren Faire accomplishments stretching … Continue reading

“On The Move” by Colin Farrell

This Contemporary Folk CD has certainly been blessed by the Muses.  Colin has managed to instrumentally create such a weave of traditional  music with enough modern flair to bring about an unexpected sense of  spiritual happiness.  Examples would be, ”Garageband Reels, Joe’s House & The Old Rogue”. “Sheelin Side“  a warm composition , even with horns, starts the tour of delight to the ears. “Soho South”  is  a 21st century ”Feelin Groovy” sort of song, an Irish  tropical island blend one might say. “Bridge Street”  is beautiful in composition,  allowing … Continue reading

Review: “Stand Look Around You” by Danny Carthy

No one sings a story like an Irishman.  Danny Carthy, an original member of Fiddlers Green, has over thirty years of professional experience to draw upon in releasing his solo CD.   Mr. Carthy’s style captures the heart and mind of the listener and puts them into the story.  Examples of this are : “Just You and Me”, ”Streedagh Sands” and “ Little Balls of Twine”.  Three different types and styles of love songs, beautifully orchestrated. “Carlingford”  is brilliant in bringing one to their senses of land, sea, love, home, heart.  Through the music … Continue reading

“Live At The Nomad” by Angus Mohr

This live concert CD is similar to being in a 31 Flavors ice cream store.  There is something here for everyone. There is a Celtic master mixed blend of original, traditional, and classic songs. Some of the diverse flavors are, Grateful Dead, Jethro Tull, Iron Maiden, and even Elvis comes back to life as a little sprinkle of Elvis flavor hits in for Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now Baby Blue”, showing good vocal range, along with “Ring Of Fire”, which is just … Continue reading
