ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An trad Irish band called the Tea Merchants was playing some rocking reels. My mind was swimming with other things. For several weeks, I went down to Fado's Irish Pub to grab a pint or whiskey to drink. The music was great but I was discontented. An idea was growing in my mind. I needed to do something about it.

After finishing sobering up a wee bit, I raced home and headed into the studio. I poured another glass of whiskey. Then I sat down and recorded Irish song after Irish song. I was on a mission.

By the end of the evening, I had eighteen songs recorded live in my studio. I went through them and found nine that I loved the best.

They were rough. They were raw.
They had the spirit of whisky imbued in them.

Songs you might hear in a pub.
Songs you might sing-a-long to.
Songs that may even make you get up dance.
My Irish heart sang that evening.

So what was this mission I was aching to share?

For several years, I've worked on a website to keep Irish folk songs alive (see it at www.irish-song-lyrics.com). I don't read sheet music. Instead, I learn the old-fashioned way. I listen.

Sadly, most lyric websites don't have soundbytes that go with it. That's my goal. I want the most comprehensive Irish song lyrics website out there that also includes audio files so you can learn like I did.

That's what got me started. To keep the website thriving, I started 4 Irish Whiskey, a side project designed to share the Irish Song Lyrics website with the world. Because it was Irish whiskey that inspired me. So 4 Irish Whiskey I will keep the Irish song tradition alive.

Slainte!

A CD of songs washed in green...two more months till St.Pat's!!!
Simple, rough, raw and folksy music on vocals (sung after a few drops O' the pure) and autoharp. The renditions of traditional Irish ballads, plus a rough n' ready Sea shanty never fail to delight, whether your Irish or not. "All For Me grog" is a rollicking pirate song sung a cappella as if it were in a pub, and it's fit for the saltiest of sea dogs. (Whether it's fit for radio airplay or not remains to be seen).
"Fiddling Green" is very touching and "The Foggy Dew" is sung with passion, the kind that makes an old Irish rebel song like this beliveable. 4 Irish Whiskey's rendition of "Whiskey in the Jar" is all ready for St. Patrick's Day and the song continues to be a classic, whether you've heard it from Irish folk groups, or just the Thin Lizzy version, or the Greatful Dead cover of it.
The album could use a bit of polishing here and there, but all in all, it's not that bad of a recording. Remember, it's only two months away so bust out your shamrocks and shileleighs, wash out your pint glasses and start practicin' sayin' "Slainte"! (Slawncha!)
Top O' The Mornin' to ye.

Irish to the Core
4 Irish Whiskey is an impassionaed and inspiring collection of songs that detail the Irish experience. Marc Gunn's vocals, clear and strong, relay traditional lyrics of war, patriotism, and honor. (It's amazing how timeless these themes are.) This album is chock-full of visual imagery and dark humor. My personal favorite is "The Night Paddy Murphy Died", in which a delightfully macabre barscene brawl ensues at...where else?...a funeral.

Highly recommended.

Wonderful addition to a collection of Celtic or Irish music
4 Irish Whiskey Pub Songs is a delightful collection of Irish music that appeals to all lovers of Celtic music. Those people who are familiar with the music of the American Civil War will especially enjoy the second entry on the CD interesting as it uses the older lyrics for the tune known as "When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again." The CD is a work that gives a very faithful rendition of these old favorites and gives them an authenticity that often is lacking in other renditions. 4 Irish Whiskey Pub Songs is a CD that would make a wonderful addition to any collection of Celtic or Irish music.

Fun and familiar but with a twist !
What a fun CD! I've been listening to Celtic music since the 60's and never tire of hearing these drinking songs. I'm always delighted to hear a new one [at least to my ears] and 4 Irish Whiskey didn't disappoint with Old Fenian Gun...really a neat song!

The autoharp provides a very interesting twist to these traditional nuggets but I think the accapella version of All For Me Grog is so good as well ! Marc's voice has taken on a "gravelly" texture on some of the cuts that I haven't noticed before...maybe we have a Ronnie Drew in the making.

Although I really love the song selections, I find they made me hungry for more. I'd love to hear a follow up CD. Thanks for helping to keep traditional music alive!!
