Live in Concertby The Bothy Band
Twenty years since their demise, the Bothy Band remain an indisputable point of comparison in Irish music. The Bothies were among a handful of young bands who in the early '70s gathered embers of a nearly extinct cultural fire and fanned them into the blaze we now know as Celtic music. They took old tunes out of village pubs and Irish ghettos, French-kissed 'em with the vigor of rock 'n'roll and set them madly spinning. If they shook out the dust and dolor, they left in the grain, the ache. Irish music doesn't -- can't -- get much sweeter, deeper, more soulful. This remarkable set, from a pair of 1976 concerts long lost in the BBC tape archives, finds the Bothies at the peak of their salty splendor. From the string wizardry of fiddler Kevin Burke and bouzoukist Donal Lunny to the flaming pipes of Paddy Keenan and Peter Browne to the austere harmonies of siblings Micheal and Triona O'Domhnaill, it's all here. The closer, "Jig and Five Reels," avenges the last thousand years of Irish oppression with seven of the most incandescent minutes of music you're likely to hear anywhere. Two decades have done nothing to tame the flame.
