Album Notes
The Three Jacks is the new name of Miami's own Celtic rockers, The Volunteers - one of America’s most entertaining Celtic rock bands with well over fifteen years of packed-out shows at clubs, pubs and auditoriums in the US and abroad.

In "Treachery, Lust & Misfortune - American Celtic" The Three Jacks take the Celtic musical inheritance of the Americas into a new century. To a base mix of much-loved Celtic traditional tunes, they fold in their mistreatments of the Celtic classics – most notably numbers by the blind, 17th Century, Irish, folk/baroque harper and boozer, Turlough O’Carolan - (his "Lord Inchiquin” now has a set of bawdy lyrics and has been re-christened “Ramrods & Bearskins”) - whip in brand new (soon to be) Celtic classics from their "catalog of 18th century folk-songs we wrote last week" - like "The ballad of the Bare-Ass Girl" - and then leaven the whole heady brew with rip-out, stomping, fiddle break-downs . . .

Excellent American Adult Celtic Rock CD
"Treachery, Lust and Misfortune" by The Three Jacks is pub friendly American Celtic Rock. Grab a Guiness and get ready to dance. The musicianship is tight and driving. The vocals are throaty and fun. The song structure is strong and has sing-along quality. You can't ignore the fiddle breakdowns either. Highlights are "Work O' The Weavers," a house burnin', sweaty number with a couple of those fore-mentioned fiddle breakdowns. "The Bare-Ass Girl" has some fun lyrics, as you can imagine. It also features some nice recorder work. The wavy "Si Bheag Si Mhor" wraps up the album nicely. If you like The Fenians or Celtic Rock in general, you will like this one.
