Some call it Celtic Fusion, some World Music, some Folk Music gone Viral. But whatever the phrase is, it is still the same musical outreach: the Future of Traditional Music. And the future is constantly expanding its horizons. Dannsair says it all.

Album Notes
Dannsair – Caledonia Song Information

1. Can’t Get You Out of My Mind (Derry) – by Russ & Siobhan Doherty, Whitney Kaufman & Jay Galvin. Inspired by Little John Nee’s play The Derry Boat as seen at The Galway Arts Festival. A song about the emotions that occur when economic circumstances force emigration and two lovers are separated. No one’s at fault but still it rips you apart.
2. Sunday Dance at Ballylickey (Bantry Bay) – by Russ Doherty. Russ’ slow jig from a Country Dance in Ballylickey Hamlet on a Sunday. A beautiful night with the moon on the water overlooking Bantry Bay.
3. Everything – Bo Hewerdine’s song about being everything you can possibly be. Based on Heidi Talbott’s version. What an inspiration.
4. Gwerzy (Belgium) – by Armstrong & Snodaigh of Kila. Kila is an incredible Dublin-based Trad group. Written to remember a Celtic Festival Kila played at in the town of Gwerzy, Belgium. Followed by Toss the Feathers, a Trad reel.
5. Going Home to Donegal – by Russ Doherty & Jay Galvin. Dumped by his girl in LA, our hero retreats home to Donegal, where the natural beauty assures that no one gets the blues.
6. Wedding Reel Set/Morning Nightcap/Malbay Shuffle (Dingle) – Traditional – We got this set from the band Lunasa and its incredible founding guitarist, Donogh Hennessy from Dingle, Santa Barbara’s Sister City.
7. There Goes My Heart Again (Hebrides Islands) – by Siobhan & Russ Doherty. Siobhan took a chorus from one of Russ’ songs, added her own story of the red-haired boy and set it to music reminiscent of her favorite Hebrides Islands songs. Tim Beccue added a beautiful cello accompaniment.
8. Middle of the Rain (USA Heartland) – by Jay & Rachel Galvin. A song about the loss of some beloved storm-chasers. From the soundtrack to the documentary Tornado Chasers. TVNWeather.com.
9. Crabs in the Skillet/Pat Burke’s Jig (County Clare) – Traditional. From the coast of Clare and Limerick, some real specific, delicious seafood and jigs.
10. Caledonia (Scotland) – by Dougie Maclean - Caledonia is the ancient name for Scotland given by the Romans 2,000 years ago. It was the name of the largest tribe who led the fight to drive out the Romans. Written by Dougie in his early 20’s (1977) when he was homesick.
11. Nothing Left to Lose (Dublin) – by Russ & Siobhan Doherty, Whitney Kaufman & Jay Galvin. They fell in love in a Dublin nightclub; Jenny on flute, Jimmy on guitar. Then headed up to the North Country. They broke up when the cold set in and no work was to be found. Russ’ lyrics of troubadour heartbreak.
12. Lenny the Leprechaun Set (Doolin) – by Russ Doherty. A reel based upon a character from Russ’ travel memoir The Quiet Man Fiddles. We met Lenny at McGann’s Traditional Irish pub in Doolin and had a wild night listening to the music. We follow it up with Ramelton Rambles from County Donegal (another reel by Russ) then Fermoy Lasses, a traditional reel.
