ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"There is enough energy springing off this CD to power a small town. “The Wicked Jig” rocks the first track, the harmonica on “Within a Mile of Dublin” is an inspired touch and “Bunch of Keys” is one of the most unusual covers ever. The sound on the melody is twisted and delightful."
- Matthew Moeller, Victory Review

"The Irish Experience cut their teeth on their first venture in 2003, to return here with a musical experience of the highest level. I see not a single fault in this album, which is a success in every aspect and an overall crowd-pleaser. GREEN ENERGY should be consumed without moderation."
- Jean-Pierre Schrike, Highlands Magazine

"Green Energy is impressive in its diversity, depth and scope. The sound ranges from traditional Celtic fiddle and percussion pieces, to folky Appalachian tunes, to outright rock guitar. Green Energy is a harmonious musical concoction that borders on addictive. From the teasing rock beat underneath the very traditional fiddle on the first track, The Wicked Jig, to the twangy John Brown’s Dream, to the haunting and lovely final tune, The Fiddler’s Lament, this is an album that takes you on a well defined journey, and leaves you wishing you could have traveled a bit farther. Check out this CD if you love instrumental music that is awesome enough to make you think vocals are simply extraneous."
- Bonnie, Celtophilia

"The Irish Experience fits the bill on their recent release Green Energy. Their music is full of Celtic, rock, blues, and country, a mighty flavorful combination that simmers down to a tasty Irish stew pleasing to the most incorrigible listener. Just throw this CD on and have a party!"
- Keith Hannaleck, Muzik Reviews

"The Irish Experience delivers irrepressible Green Energy on their CD. This is an accomplished instrumental disc that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day or anytime you want to get back to your real or adopted Irish roots. A great listen."
- Wildy's World

WHAT is THE IRISH EXPERIENCE?

COULD it be "High-impact Celtic music at its finest"?

Or "Refried fiddle, electric guitar, and downright bass"?
How about a festive force? An insatiable jig? Renewed vigor?
Or even, implausibly, a "Blarney Phoenix", that rises up on Saint Patrick's Eve to bring bountiful cheer to all the little people at heart?

We'd like to say The Irish Experience is all of these and more, but really we're just a band of musicians from Seattle who like nothing better than to light up crowds on Saint Patrick's Day.

The Irish Experience play Celtic and Appalachian music on traditional electric instruments:

Joe Bowbeer - electric fiddle
Tom Hotchkin - upright bass
Tom May - electric guitar

GREEN ENERGY is our second album, featuring performances by:

Julian Adamaitis - synthesizer
Tor Dietrichson - cajón, congas, bongos, tabla, tambourine
Karim Koumbassa - djembe, dunun
Darren Loucas - harmonica
Lynn Post - clogging

Recorded and mixed by Conrad Uno, designed by Diana Baker, and mastered by Chris Hanzsek.

The Irish Experience is Green Energy!
