Karan Casey and John Doyle were compatriots back in the glory days of
Solas, both departing for solo careers around the turn of the century.
I can’t honestly say how much their paths have crossed in the
intervening years, but hearing them together again in this relatively
modest setting of traditional songs is an unalloyed pleasure. Doyle,
of course, provides much of the musical backdrop with his
distinctively nimble guitar, with added textures from Dirk Powell
(banjo, double bass) and Michael McGoldrick (flute, whistle). Both
Doyle and Casey are incredible singers also, and feature here in a
number of solo and duet settings. The end result is a very striking
record, one that may not garner attention outside the world of Irish
traditional music, but one deserving of much broader exposure.
