Irish Poetry/Spoken Word


For anyone who loves Irish music and poetry, this is the album for you. A collaboration a long time in the making, Paddy Moloney of The Chieftains fame and John Montague, celebrated Irish poet, have at last produced the album they've talked about since the 1960s.

It is a combination of John Montague's moving and tear inducing poetry and Paddy Moloney's evocative and stirring Uilleann pipes. As well as the pipes, he plays the tin whistle and Sir James Galway also appears along with the other members of The Chieftains. The Irish pianist, Veronica McSwiney also contributes.

Poems by John Montague & Music arranged by Paddy Moloney.

Also featuring: Kevin Conneff, Sean Keane, Triona Marshall, Matt Molloy, Sir James Galway and Veronica McSwiney.
