ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With their new CD, lovedeathbeauty, Green Man offers a unique presentation. The palette of sounds is large and varied, combining acoustic instruments (flutes, whistle, accordion, uilleann pipes, cittern & sitar) with electronica, loops, beats and samples, rock guitar, Eastern rhythms, and lush vocal harmonies. Building on traditional lyrics and melodies, the band delivers a cinematic soundscape, ranging from Celtic to Appalachian to Arabic that is unique, exciting and fresh.

Live shows occasionally feature any combination of bellydancers, firedancers, Irish step-dancing, hula hoops and video montages.

GREEN MAN have shared the stage with Battlefield Band, Black 47, Celtic Soul, Cowboy Junkies, The Frames, Gaelic Storm, Arlo Guthrie, Talitha MacKenzie, Todd Rundgren, Show Of Hands, Seven Nations, and The Young Dubliners, among many others. Martin Morrisey's dancing feet have appeared with The Chieftains and on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Music Style:
Celtic / World / Electronica

Press Reviews:
"I like (it) very much. It's a very interesting approach... much more authentic than Riverdance music, it (has) a much nicer edge to it."
--Joe Boyd, Producer (Pink Floyd, REM, 10,000 Maniacs)


"Green Man combines Celtic and Eastern music to sometimes startling effect. The music is all lush and lovely, like Enya touring with Lawrence of Arabia."
--Listen.com


"Too many Irish bands in Los Angeles fit into one of two categories - Celtic rock a la drums, electric guitar and bass slaughtering "Brown-Eyed Girl" or "Fisherman's Blues" - or strictly traditional, overly polite bands. Green Man is a band of solid musicianship that electrifies...their willingness to experiment is refreshing."
--Dave Soyars, Irish Herald (San Francisco)


"Green Man's music is rooted in Celtic - but the instrumentation takes them around the world, and even into space, while held together with incredible rhythm."
--John Wilmott, Celtic Ways

Singing Praises to the Green Man
I love GREEN MAN! Awesome CDs! I have purchased two of the CDs and love the celtic flair and mystic to the music. Some almost have a gypsy feel to them. I adore the 'Conversations with Death' piece and applaude the way it was fashioned. Lastly, thank you for including song lyricks with your CD's for us less gifted fans who like to sing along!! I've been passing the word along to everyone I know. Keep the music alive~ Peace

Every beat has a soul in it.
The sound takes my Irish Ancestrial roots and transports them into the modern world and beyond. Every beat has a soul in it. You take me there Greenman!

This music is wonderful!
All the songs are great. My favorite is "herringbone Sky" and "Anach Cuain" but, it is hard to pick out just a couple.

Taking Celtic music where it needs to go!
This is a great CD! Greenman takes Celtic music where it needs to go - a little arabian, a little trip-hop, a little tradition and a little something else. Very creative, compelling - dark but not too dark... makes you want more!
