New Irish Folk

This New Sounds is devoted to new music from the Irish folk tradition, including music by the late Mícheál O Domhnaill. O Domhnaill was a guitarist who, according to some, created the blueprint for subtle and driving guitar accompaniment in Irish music. The guitarist and composer helped found one of the pivotal bands in the Irish folk revival, The Bothy Band, and went on to form the US-based outfits Nightnoise, Relativity, Puck Fair, and to play in various other settings that often moved well beyond the Gaelic tradition.
