Album Notes
Just when you think you've pegged Stoneybatter Band as having a traditional Irish "pure drop" sound, they waltz into a chantey that can carry you like the swells of the ocean, or surprise you with a bouzouki solo that feels like a brisk Sunday drive on a leaf covered back road somewhere in the hills of Vermont. The slip of the jig and the lift of the reels, however, can raise the hair, beat the heart, and make that pint taste just a wee bit better. After all, it is the rich tradition of Celtic music that originally brought this bunch together.

Driven by a three headed rhythm section and textured by the sonorous melodies created by wind, reed, and bow, Stoneybatter are most at home weaving tunes or warbling songs of lost loves and longing for the comforts of home. Whether it's a smokey set of reels, the lore of a ballad, or a bluegrass inspired tale, Stoneybatter's sound is infused with innovation, while remaining respectful of tradition.
