The Irish Experience was formed in 1996 on Saint Patrick's Day. Their self-titled first CD is a mainstay on the World Music charts. On Green Energy, The Irish Experience return with more electrifying fiddle, rock guitar, downright doghouse bass, and masterful drums.
"The Irish Experience is a festive force, an insatiable jig. It is renewed vigor. The Irish Experience is high-impact Celtic music at its finest."
"The Irish Experience play Celtic and Appalachian music on traditional electric instruments."
Reviews of GREEN ENERGY:
"There is enough energy springing off this CD to power a small town. The Wicked Jig rocks the first track, the harmonica on Within a Mile of Dublin is an inspired touch and Bunch of Keys is one of the most unusual covers ever. The sound on the melody is twisted and delightful."
-- Matthew Moeller, Victory Review
"The Irish Experience cut their teeth on their first venture in 2003, to return here with a musical experience of the highest level. I see not a single fault in this album, which is a success in every aspect and an overall crowd-pleaser. GREEN ENERGY should be consumed without moderation."
-- Jean-Pierre Schrike, Highlands Magazine
"The Irish Experience fits the bill on their recent release Green Energy. Their music is full of Celtic, rock, blues, and country. A mighty flavorful combination that simmers down to a tasty Irish stew pleasing to the most incorrigible listener. Just throw this CD on and have a party!"
-- Keith Hannaleck, Muzik Reviews
