Overview

The youthful seven-man traditional Irish group Danú continues their investigation of fiery authentic Irish jigs, reels, and ballads on their second CD for Shanachie Records, entitled All Things Considered. Roughly half of the songs are the instrumentals that the band has become famous for at festivals worldwide, but the most successful songs are the ones sung the by gentle-voiced Ciarán Ó Gealbháin, whose ballads and folk songs provide a welcome respite from the whirling blasts of the band's reels and jigs. Recorded over two years at Liam Clancy's studios in County Waterford and rehearsed over two years in nearby Mooney's Pub (seven generations in the family of Danú piper Donnchadh Gough), the tracks resonate with the deep wooden tones of both the pub and the legendary studio, each song flooded with rich history and warm companionship.

This was an album that I could not switch off. On my initial hearing I knew that it would be one of those CD's that you can listen to over and over again. I also listened to Michael McGoldrick's 'Fused' and Seamus Begley's 'Ragaire' over and over again. The CD opened very lively and vigorously and maintained its energy throughtout. I especially liked the singing of Bridget Donoughue. My Mother told me that she often heard this song on grammaphone when she was a young girl. It was sang to a different air but the words were the same. She couldn't remember who recorded it. I think that Danu are the replacement solus. I like the way Danu's reperotire are mostly traditional tunes. Solus seem to have lost track of who thier audicence it.
