ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Blackstone Cúil (pronounced Kool) was a celtic-fusion band performing unique arrangements of Irish traditional and contemporary songs, as well as original music between 2010 and 2018. Blackstone Cúil is named for a section of Worcester, MA where the Irish-born Blackstone Canal workers were halted at the city limits, only to settle and thrive as the largest claimed heritage in the county.
The term Irish Mod was coined to describe the special style of Celtic music the band has developed, not too light, not too heavy, NEVER boring. Blackstone Cúil's big sound was perfect for festivals, rattled the rafters of rock clubs, and lilted with the lush dynamics fitting for theatres. The blending of Mike Ladd’s voice and guitar, Myra MacLeod’s fiddle, Steve Harnois's bass, multi-instrumentalist Brendan Keenan, and Johhny Guertin’s drums and percussion blazed a new trail through the Celtic music genre that bridged multiple styles – say it! Irish Mod. Traditional Celtic songs and tunes are arranged in refreshing and surprising ways, as are familiar contemporary songs, balanced by stylish original compositions; a Blackstone Cúil show is as much an experience as it is just plain fun.
"The Parting Glass" is the band's second and final album, a legacy offering to fans and the band members themselves. It's unlikely you'll hear a band so adept and creative at crossing musical genres while remaining enjoyably listenable.
