Long running, two piece, Minnesota based Irish folk-punk band, The Langer’s Ball, always manages to surprise. Fortunately on, Appetite for Tradition, they don’t “surprise” us with an album of Guns’n’Roses covers given a Celtic twist but surprise us with a collection of pure Irish traditional music, Airs, Jigs and Reels, and they do this very, very well. Maybe the most authentic traditional Irish music west of the Mississippi (assuming they are actually west of the Mississippi). In all there are 34 different tunes broken down into 14 tracks. Very enjoyable.
