Album Notes
2004 nominee - "Best Celtic Album"

Imagine a session band escaping from the psycho ward, commandeering a steamroller up & down the interstate, plugging in and turning up to eleven, all the while raving about thistles and shamrocks floating to the shores of America.
It began in 1999, as three friends gathered for sessions. Casey Jones, George Zienowicz and Andy Redmond recognized that songs known by Irish and Scottish soldiers and the Celtic music that evolved in America were rich repositories that could use a little exploring. With the addition of two more friends, Bud Osthaus and Glenn Owens and, (since all members were a bit older than their “garage band” days), the name Na’Bodach, (Gaelic for “not old men”), seemed appropriate.
Research into the various melodies and lyrics that accompany these tunes and the historical integrity employed in documentation displays the respect for the traditions and culture that Na’Bodach share with their audience.

The use of electric guitar, electric bagpipes, electric fiddle, electro-acoustic guitar and a pumped up bodhran, juxtaposed with a strong, four man vocal range, are insuring that a person at a Na’Bodach gig are treated to an experience in Celtic music they won’t soon forget. Larry Kirwan of Black47 fame has been moved to call Na’Bodach “sledgehammer Celtic” and “one of the best of the new bands.”
A “Neutrik” electronics endorsee, Na’Bodach appears at Celtic festivals in the Eastern USA and venues close to their home area of Philadelphia, PA. Their critically acclaimed debut CD, “Knickers Down, Bottoms Up”, continues to sell well throughout North America, Europe and Japan as is their most recent release, “An Intelagent Design” Both albums have been recognized by “Just Plain Folks”, an independent music organization, as nominees for “Best Celtic Album” in 2004 & 2006!
They are true to tradition and culture yet, they always throw in a few drams of high octane so we can all enjoy the eclectic musical mix that is Na’Bodach!

Not a Rock and Roll band influenced by Celtic music,
but a Traditional band influenced by electricity!

Also from Celtboy Records: Na'Bodach "An Intelagent Design" & Andy Redmond "Kilted Warriors" on CdBaby!

You guys are awesome - we really enjoyed you at Brittingham's - Glen, we enjoyed
Your CD is great! You have a unique sound and we thoroughly enjoy it!

Sweet William

What a Debut!
This ia a "one of a kind" band! All the music, whether vocal or instrumental is performed with energy and a unique style. Finnegan's Wake should be its own classic! And the percussion...primal yet, refined...who knew?


This CD is absolutely the total package. Every type of instrument is used brilliantly. This band is awesome...I can't wait for another album

Richard Molenkamp

Celtic folk with balls, great music
Great Celtic (irish) folk music supported by elctric/acoustic rock. Especially the slow version (backed by electric guitar)of the traditional song Finnegans wake is a masterpiece in itself. After listening to this CD several times I can only think: More.....

Nik Allen

Absolutely Brilliant - I can't take my foot off the gas pedal !!
Great driving, foot tapping music,well done lads from a Welsh Celt in Canada.

Lisa Wildfire

They kick a**. Crank the volume. Delicious.
"Traditional" may have written the songs, but that's not who's playing it. This CD is an amazing synergy of generations-old with cutting-edge new, without sounding forced or commercial. My 13 y.o. son, v. choosy abt his music, said Na Bodach's version of John Barleycorn was much better than Traffic's. A delicious, satisfying musical meal.

01/06 - Traditional Irish Fare in both MILD and WOW sauce versions!
A really great mix of traditional Irish sounds, original songs, and some kick ass electric mix and rock! The band steps up -- this album IS at the end of the rainbow! Great job!
