On this packed, 19 song CD, you will hear the joy and sorrow of the Irish and Irish Americans in an hour of great music that is perfect for St. Patricks' Day and quickly come to understand why The Bards are considered "masters of the traditional folk".
ABOUT THE BROBDINGNAGIAN BARDS
The Brobdingnagian Bards (pronounced brAHb'ding-näg-EE-en) are The Original Celtic Renaissance music group from Austin, Texas offering free Celtic mp3 downloads. They perform a unique style of music combining Scottish and Irish folk songs with music inspired by the Lord of the Rings, performed on non-traditional instruments--autoharp, recorder, and mandolin.
In just five years, they've completed six studio albums and performed coast-to-coast. Ask their fans, and they'll tell you The Bards are just plain "fun!" Which makes sense since, after all, they just love the music.
