So you started out liking the Dropkick Murphys, then discovered Flogging Molly and then the Pogues and now your inspired to check out some pure tradition Irish music. Well this might be the CD for you then.
San Francisco’s Culann’s Hounds are one of the purest and best tradition Irish groups I’ve heard in a long time. This really is the real thing. The jigs and reels sound like they originated around a fireside in West Cork and the ballads like they came from the deepest Liberties of Dublin, especially with Frank Jordan whose voice at times sounds like he’s possessed by the ghost of Luke Kelly.
