big plain records - Irish Music in America

BP3205: Round The Bend - Glen Road
Big mighty massive music from Ireland, Newfoundland and the US, all mixed up to blow the icicles off a cold Quebec winter. Even better than eating your oatmeal!

'From the opening notes of the first jig, this softly dazzling CD takes you in its embrace, and never lets you down. ' - Paul Carr - Irish Herald
BP3203: Shame The Devil - Turlach Boylan
Follow up to The Tidy Cottage from Turlach on flute, whistle, banjo and mandola with help from a few friends.

'Tell the truth and shame the devil' - William Shakespeare
'Turlach Boylan is a great and terrible liar' - Rex Shaver
BP3202: the tidy cottage - Turlach Boylan
Most of all, it comes down to one fact: the boy can really play.' - Dirty Linen

'I've always had a soft spot for flute music and when it's being played the way Turlach plays it, I just sit down and listen in awe.' - Mich Nielsen, The Folk Pages
BP3201: The Derry Boat - Gleann an -olair CFilf Band
'The melodies are bright, uplifting, and played with wonderful spirit. The rhythm accompaniment (piano) balances the melody well - does not overpower it. This is hard to find in ceili band music! I enjoy listening to this CD even when I'm not dancing!' - Helen Gough-Conboy, Prince Edward Island, Canada
