Need some St. Patrick's Day songs you can count on to set just the right mood as you kick back and enjoy the holiday? Then this is the perfect CD for you, packed with everything you need for a good ‘ol Irish celebration in 19 tracks. Put on the drinking songs and ballads and general fun will be had as you listen to the Brobdingnagian Bards do their thing!
The Brobdingnagian Bards excel in entertaining. The simple, yet skilled musical arrangements for each tune give the songs the Celtic Renaissance flavor that they are famous for. Just two men, Marc Gunn and Andrew Mckee make up this band, and they play, and play off of each other well. (Oh, and just in case you weren't sure, it is brAHb'ding-näg-EE-en Bards.)
As anyone who has heard the Bards already knows, the singing is always energetic, and it leaves no doubt that these gentlemen just love what they do. This is a CD that can and should be played from start to finish, and even be set on repeat without it getting tiresome!
This duo provides that special kind of music that encourages camaraderie and sets things up for a good, social atmosphere. You'll feel like you are out with a couple of friends that have a lot of talent when you play this CD. A St. Patrick's Day, two green thumbs up from this listener!
