Irish Folk Fest




Irish Folk Fest
2007




Our first exposure to Irish Folk music couldn't have come at a bettter time. In the mid-1970s a Folk music revival was in full swing in Ireland thanks to the 1960s Folk music craze in America. The Dubliners, the Chieftains and Makem and Clancy were at the top of their game. We were listening and learning especially from songwriters like Tommy Makem, Ewan MacColl, Pete St. John and Phil Coulter.

 

We dedicate this collection of ballads to Tommy Makem, the godfather of Irish Folk music. We're his biggest fans and are proud to call him our friend.

 

Thank you, Tommy, for all the great songs, steller performances and the integrity you have brought to Irish Folk music.
