Altan Link:


The Blue Idol

2002, Narada

You’re going to drop whatever you’re doing and give your undivided attention to this one when you hear it. The Blue Idol is a mesmerizing and hypnotic ballet through the heart and soul of all things life affirming and mystical about Irish Music. Fiercely passionate and textural ensemble playing is the norm, led by the robust fiddling and breathtaking vocals of Mairead Ni Mhaonaigh. Whether tackling traditional forms, original compositions, jigs, reels, or featuring a Dolly Parton cameo, Altan remains a driving force in world music.—Mike Jurkovic
