Irish Folk from Göttingen

Here we do have MARY'S BARD from Göttingen, but, hm, I don't really know if this is just something like a one man "project" or a "true" (at least a two men or so) band. The singer and guitar player is no one else than MARY'S BARD himself (a very sympathic and communicative guy, by the way), but there is also his crony Fiedler Knauf with who MARY'S BARD is also playing the live concerts, and then there is also a young woman who is doing also her parts to make the songs and the music a nice journey into some other kinds of worlds... So, you see, I don't really have a clue... But I guess that at the end of the day this all is really not that much important at all, right?!? So now to the music and the record: From MARY'S BARD we do get beautiful, soulful, yet powerful, and truly good done Irish Folk music the traditional way administered to us. All played on an accoustic guitar, supported by a very fine nice fiddle and some other traditional Irish Folk instruments, too, made round by some fine and good female vocals, and characterized by a strong, dirty, and whisey and beer soaked voice. Beautiful music to sit and think, to lay down and dream, to caress your girl and spend a wonderful time together with her, or to stand and shout, to drink and dance. That's how I like it!!! If you are into Irish Folk music, then you need to give MARY'S BARD a fair try, urgently!!! And do yourself a favor, and check MARY'S BARD also live, they are really damn good, and there is also a not so small political standpoint to it that you will get much, much better live. Hm, if I remember it correctly, then they do also cover a bunch of IRA battle songs, like it or not, but that's a statement of one of a kind, if you ask me!!! I also like this, haha!!! This CD comes with a little info writ, in a more DVD like case, as a CD-R, in a nice artwork, and with very well fitting lyrics (not printed, but you get them while you listen to the songs). Now I'll drink a good chilled Guinness, yeahr, that's what I'm about to do right now. Delicious!!! Like the music!!! (8 of 10 points)
