Album Notes
Cairde na Gael .... playing O'kie Irish Music !

What is Cairde na Gael ? In Irish, it's pronounced (kar-djuh nuh gayl) and it means "Friends of the Gaelic (Irish/Scot)". O'kie Irish Music is a little play on words describing our particular style of Irish music. Our music is based on the styles of great Irish bands such as The Dubliners, The Clancys, and The Wolftones. We just add a pinch of "Oklahoma" to get O'kie Irish Music.

The band grew from a weekly session band. In Ireland various musicians gather at the pubs and have open sessions or jam nights. Cairde na Gael began from just such a musician's session, right in downtown Tulsa at Arnie's Irish Bar. What began as a traditional open session group became a band. Our best and latest addition is the lovely vocalist Kelly Lamb. Kelly has one of those sincere and soulful voices that evokes passionate emotions. She has added a new element to the band. Cairde na Gael can still be found playing at Arnie's Irish Bar.

The members of the band include Frank Smreker (guitar, harmonica and vocals), Kelly Lamb (vocals), Mike Roohan (vocals and drum), Rusty Starbuck (banjo and mandolin), Todd McDonald (penny whistle and pipes), Jon McClure (bass), and our tie to all our Irish pasts, Phil Duffy (button accordion) all the way from County Cavan Ireland.

Our tunes include, traditional dance tunes, pub songs, ballads, and sing-a-longs. The band has played at various Irish Festivals and Pubs, Tulsa's Oktoberfest, and the Cherokee Resort & Casino in Catoosa. The band released it's debut CD, titled "Cairde na Gael", in August of 2005.

James Lamb

Terrific traditional Irish band--soon to be famous.
You'll find youself singing along with this seven-piece Irish band. Great vocals, especially The Spanish Lady and Peg 'n Awl. Try it. You'll like it.

Mike McDonnell

Great Mix of Traditional Irish Music
What an amazing variety of Irish music all in one CD !!
Jigs and Polkas that make you want to get up and dance.
Pub songs that get you singing along and sweet ballads that make you soulfull.
These folks have Irish soul. I hope they make another CD soon. (They also have a cool web-site with great candid photos!

Cairde Na Gael is one hell of a traditional Irish band...
Although we mostly play more upbeat Celtic Rock & Punk... it's great to play a track or two of the traditional stuff if it's played the way it should be. Cairde Na Gael is one hell of a traditional Irish band with great musicians playing this great traditional music! If you dig the Wolfe Tones, Dubliners, and even the Chieftains with a added touch of Oklahoma flavor.... you will love this disc.
