Album Notes
We love old music. We love Irish music. We love old Irish music, especially when we get to play it together. That’s why we’re calling this recording “Old Ceol.” “Ceol,” prounounced “key-ohl,” is Irish for “music” (and even if you mispronounce it “soul,” we won’t correct you, because we think this music has soul in spades!), and “old” is – well, old. Indeed, much of the music on this recording is at least 200 years old, and comes from a variety of sources: the compositions of Turlough O’Carolan and Cornelius Lyons; Canon James Goodman’s “Tunes of the Munster Pipers” and Edward Bunting’s “Ancient Music of Ireland” collections; plus some new tunes and a few whose sources are unknown to us that we’ve learned from the playing of great musicians past and present. (Oh, and also a bunch of tunes with “Lark” in their names!) It’s important to note that much of this music would be lost if not for the doughty souls who collected it from the old musicians. And still, even though this music has been around longer than many of us can imagine, to us it’s still as fresh and alive as it was in 1600, 1800, or 1900. So thank you for spending some time with the “old ceol.” We certainly love playing it, and we hope you like listening!
