Old Hag You Have Killed Me [Mulligan]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
On their 1975 self-titled debut, the Bothy Band single-handedly reinvented traditional Celtic music for the post-Industrial Age. The ferocious fiddling of Tommy Peoples, the lucid piping of Paddy Keenan, the peerless flute playing of Chieftain Matt Malloy, and the percussive, clock-like precision of Donal Lunny's bouzouki made for an intoxicating brew, one that would not only retain its effects on the next album, but would surpass it. Like lightening in a bottle, Old Hag You Have Killed Me remains a benchmark for the genre, a reverent yet forward-thinking collection of traditional Irish music kissed by the contemporary wand of the late '70s.

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
On their 1975 self-titled debut, the Bothy Band single-handedly reinvented traditional Celtic music for the post-Industrial Age. The ferocious fiddling of Tommy Peoples, the lucid piping of Paddy Keenan, the peerless flute playing of Chieftain Matt Malloy, and the percussive, clock-like precision of Donal Lunny's bouzouki made for an intoxicating brew, one that would not only retain its effects on the next album, but would surpass it. Like lightening in a bottle, Old Hag You Have Killed Me remains a benchmark for the genre, a reverent yet forward-thinking collection of traditional Irish music kissed by the contemporary wand of the late '70s. Joining Keenan and Lunny this time around are vocalist/clavinet player Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill and an up-and-coming fiddler named Kevin Burke -- a master of the ornamental Sligo style of Irish fiddling, Burke would go on to great success with Patrick Street, Open House, and as a member of the lauded Celtic Fiddle Festival. The seamless incorporation of these instruments into the mix -- the clavinet is the percussive keyboard that fueled Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" and "You Haven't Done Nothing" -- along with the group's penchant for picking tunes that few at the time were performing helped the Bothy Band rise to the top of burgeoning Celtic revival scene. While subsequent albums maintain a high level of quality, Old Hag You Have Killed Me remains not only the pinnacle of the band's career, but one of the genre's most important and beloved recordings.
