Tour Ends in Style
Here I am back in good old Atlanta having spent three weeks in the
company of some of my favorite musicians and people in the world. The
tour was a great success overall. For the band it was fun and drama
free, for me it was a great working vacation with family, for the audiences
it seems to have been a joy to the ears and to reviewers all over the
country it was something to write good things about. If you want to
read back through my tour log and see what it was like to travel with
Ireland's finest traditional band, then just click below.

Live in New York Once again we set Alice
Farrell free from the shackles of her day job and out into the cold March
winds to check out Lunasa who were playing their second Big Apple show
in less than a week.
This amazing band features some of the finest traditional music players
in the world and are renowned for their live shows.
With a new album out on Compass Records here in the U.S., it seems the
band were on a high and left our poor Alice gasping for more.
Check out Alice's review of the show and come back again soon to check
out her review of the latest album. More
Playing Catchup with new albums I go out of town for a few weeks
and when I return my apartment is filled with albums all ready and eager
to get reviewed on JigTime. In the true spirit of our site I felt it
only right that I should do nothing for the next week except listen to
great music and then tell you which ones I think you will enjoy most.
Coming soon we will have album reviews from both sides of the Atlantic
from the likes of Sam Bush and Lunasa. For now though, with Merlefest
less than a month away I think I should guide you towards two titles
that I think are important to all fans of great music Click
