Belfast Andi: All That Glitters

Belfast born Andriu MacGabhann is better known in his new home base of Montreal as Belfast Andi. Andi’s latest release is a collection of both traditional and modern Irish folk ballads, with both originals and well know standards and a couple of Tom Waits and The Who covers given the Celtic treatment. Though I would have liked to have heard a few Montreal French influences here – maybe on the next? All the same I think comparisons to a certain Irish balladeer from Newbridge, Co. Kildare are in order here.
