Album Notes
For two years The Wakes have played around Glasgow, across Britain and in Europe, releasing a previous album, These Hands. Now the Glasgow band hopes to explore the Irish identity in Scotland and across the world more fully with No Irish Need Apply.

Glasgow-Irish in word and deed The Wakes embrace their culture, heritage and surroundings in song. Covering all manner of subjects from immigration and unemployment, to uprising and rebellion in Scotland, Ireland and beyond.

Writing their own songs as well as performing traditional ballads and tunes, The Wakes bridge the gap between the Irish who landed here many years ago and those who live here today.
