Here’s a taste of Randal Bays’ exquisite fiddle on the air, Anach Cuain preceding the powerful song of The Blacksmith. I only recently learned that one my ancestors included a blacksmith from Cork City – so perhaps it’s only fitting that this song was such a favorite from the newly remastered from the 1983 Wildgeese recording now available here..

“I Wish My Love Was a Red, Red Rose” from the newly remastered from the 1983 Wildgeese recording now available here.

The producer’s choice for an original track and the first recording of “Undressed Melody” in a younger Kate’s voice on the newly remastered from the 1983 Wildgeese recording now available here.

The opening track on Wildgeese Celtic Music of the Northwest starts with Planxty Charles, Kitty’s Wedding and builds into the third thunderous tune, Sonny Brogan’s finishes the set. A sample of the first two refresh memories of Portland in 1983 and this newly reissued recording now available here.wildgeese_cover_1_20150211
