ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Raglan Road is one of the most stylistically diverse bands in the world. This is an odd statement since it is also technically an Irish band.



The four members have such different backgrounds that, given the improvisational quality of Irish tunes (reels, jigs, hornpipes, etc.), one can only expect to hear a melting pot of influences.



From tune to tune and, in fact, within each tune the Celtic flavor is enhanced with elements of rock, jazz, disco, heavy metal, samba, techno, funk, country, and anything else that pops into the heads of these musicians.



But, tunes are not all Raglan Road has to offer. The band also plays original songs as well as Irish standards. The standards are played as only Raglan Road can play them- with unequalled flare and intensity.



One can hear an old favorite in a modern setting. The originals might easily be described as "rock music" but, of course, they too are splashed with the myriad styles Raglan Road has at its disposal. They have as much (and in many cases more) substance as any hit song one can hear on the radio.



The members of Raglan Road include Dominic Cromie (from Co. Armagh, Ireland), Matt Mancuso (from Brooklyn, New York), Ed Kollar and Dave Barckow (both from Woodside, NY).



Dominic Cromie is the guitar player and singer for Raglan Road. He gained his experience playing Irish music and rock music in Ireland and England. He then came to America and formed Raglan Road.



Matt Mancuso, who plays fiddle and trumpet, grew up listening to and playing Irish tunes and jazz. He has competed in the All-Ireland fiddle competition and placed 2nd three times? Ed Kollar plays the double bass in Raglan Road. He began playing the electric bass in rock bands before picking up the double bass to play jazz (which he still often does). Dave Barckow has been playing the drums since he was nine years old. He has appeared on numerous recordings by various artists of many styles (from country to heavy metal).



Raglan Road have performed in venues like Webster Hall NY, Toads Place, CT and venues as far away as Albany, Boston, Montauk and N. Carolina. Raglan Road have also performed on Z100, one of America's biggest radio stations and VH1 music recently.



One should not miss the opportunity to hear this band play or pick up a copy of the just-released CD "Raglan Road Live," featuring the unique arrangements of tunes and originals by Dominic Cromie and Dave Barckow that keep fans coming back for more.

Exceptional...
Having seen Raglan Road on stage, then listening to this album, amazing to say the least. This CD gives you the greatest idea of what they sound like live. Well chosen music for this Live CD and a great spring board for people who may not be interested in Irish music, or so they think. A non-typical album to go with a non-typical band.

Old friends, new setting
raglan road live has been in my heavy rotation since i bought two and a half years ago! Knowing the guys has nothing to do with it, i love this CD, it isn't too irish, but isn't irish enough. Just a perfect blend of there original songs mixed with some jigs and reels that set you in the mood to do just about anything, shop, eat or go to bed! Seriously though they are absolutely amazing live, the CD can't even come close to capturing the feelings they put into their songs live in person. Whether in a small pub at three in the morning, or in a big venue opening for a "bigger" act these guys are untouchable! But wheres their next CD, I can't wait!!!!

You can't help but play this CD over and over and over
This CD has amazing energy and flow! You can't stop listening to it. From the amazing fiddle playing to the inspiring lyrics, you will not be able to sit still. Live they are even more amazing. Playing Irish favorites that everyone joins in singing with, to the touching words of Dominic and Dave, your feet will not stop moving. Even the non-Irish will love it! I'm not Irish and I am even taking Irish Step classes so when I see these guys I get the most out if the show! Definatley not a CD or Live show you want to let slip through your fingers!

Great band and a great CD
I could only give them 4 stars so that they could have something to shoot for in the next CD. For young Irish and Irish-Americans, this is a CD that you can be proud of. Even if you don't like Irish music you can still enjoy this CD. Do yourself a favor also, see them LIVE it's 10 times better.
