Another giant of an album from one of the most prominent and respected Irish bands performing today. Patrick Street’s sixth recording, Made In Cork, brings together all the best elements of the genre: virtuosic fiddle and accordion playing (Kevin Burke, Jackie Daly), poignant songs (Andy Irvine), inventive guitar rhythms (Ged Foley), intricate arrangements, and a great selection of tunes.
Included are two sets of polkas performed in seamless duet by polka masters Burke & Daly, sweet combinations of double jigs, slip jigs, hornpipes, reels, and slides played pure and clean, and four songs by Andy Irvine, with backing vocals from Ged Foley. The album is quiet yet powerful, a refined and refreshing performance that’s as real as it gets.
