Courage and Patience and Grit
Great Big Sea
Runtime: 1 hrSince they emerged in the early 90s, Newfoundland's own Great Big Sea have gradually consolidated a reputation as one of the greatest neo-Celt bands, from anywhere in the Six Nations or, as in this case, beyond. Drawing upon their homeland's strong Irish and Scottish ancestry and centuries-old seafaring heritage, they have fashioned a roistering, danceable sound and a live presence not unlike a bar-band but operating on a massive scale. But for all their good-time, party-hearty extroversion, they also demonstrate a rare affinity for love songs and more introspective types of material. Recorded in spectacular sound before adoring audiences, this "kitchen party," as one band member described it, is at once intimate and grand, folkloric and modern, acoustic and electric. Traditional instruments like fiddle, tin whistle, accordion are fused seamlessly with electric guitars and trap drums, plus tight and charismatic lead and harmony vocals, creating a spiraling energy that takes the crowd by storm and hurtles from living room speakers like a conquering wave.
Runtime: 1 hr 23 minIt’s Entertainment! focuses on Celtic Thunder’s affinity for a great popular song. A musical revue spanning six decades, It's Entertainment! is a perfect showcase for Celtic Thunder's versatile and talented performers.
A New Journey: Live At Slane Castle
Runtime: 1 hr 33 minLive at Slane Castle, Ireland was recorded this past August at Slane Castle in County Meath, Ireland, the home of Lord Henry Mount Charles- a gorgeous location that has also hosted concerts by U2 and Bruce Springsteen. The 80-minute, 25-track concert draws on material from both their self-titled debut CD and A New Journey.
Live at Montreux
Runtime: 1 hr 25 minFounded by Paddy Maloney in 1962, The Chieftains were one of the first bands to popularise Irish traditional music around the world and today their status as one of the finest Irish bands of all time remains unchallenged. They have received awards from around the world including 6 Grammys and an Emmy and worked alongside some of the greatest names in pop, classical and folk music. This superb concert from Montreux features the classic line-up in a blend of song, music and dance that draws from the Irish tradition but encompasses influences as disparate as Galicia and the Rolling Stones.
