Album Notes
Darby O'Gill is a high-energy stage-show band that uses fine music and cutting humor in a singularly Irish style, and is equally at home in an intimate pub setting as on a concert stage. Their music is ancient and modern, from a 14th century Madrigal to Pink Floyd. Many of them are original, award-winning pieces. The majority are traditional Irish/Scottish songs. But the single most important thing to be said about their music is that in none of it is there ever to be found any hint or reference to squirrels.

A little whiskey with your egg nog?
Ever wanted to celebrate Christmas and St. Patrick's day at the same time? well, here is your present. Darby O'Gill write a lot of songs about drinking, it's true...but the band is top-notch in terms of muscianship and this album delivers the goods just like Santa Claus to all the good lil' Irish lads and lasses. Of particular note on the CD are the two spoken-word tracks courtesy of band-leader Scott Messer "Just Before Christmas" and "A Christmas Story", one which describes the moral mis-adventures of an Irish-American boy whose mind is set on the goodies left by Santa, the other is one's account of the Santa controversy itself: real or fiction? ("A Christmas Story" appropriately leads into the popular holiday tune, the jazzy "Zat You, Santa Claus?)"
If you like witty tunes, check out "Hae Yer'sel a Canty Wee Bit Christmas", the Scottish version of the popular christmas jazz standard. Messer does one fantastic, authentic Scottish acent and delivers some superb vocals in the tune.
Then of course, are the holiday drinking/rowdy Irish tunes. "Christmas Comes But Once a Year", "Christmas in Kilarney", and if you want to get really Irish, "Mrs. Fogarty's Christmas Cake". Messer adds a few extra lines to these three traditional tunes and Art Kohenke plays some beautiful mandolin on "Christmas in Kilarney". Ken Andresen plays some killer accordion on most of the album.
So whether you're at a Christmas party and you're Irish, Scottish, Welsh, or just love hearty, laid-back pub tunes, then order a tall glass of an Irish Christmas Rollick.


WOW!!!! You will not believe this CD. It is wonderfully done. Good mix of songs. Wasn't the Hallelujah I was expecting, it was much better!
