ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
*** TWO TIME WINNER of AUSTIN MUSIC AWARD ***

A compilation of our most-popular Irish drinking songs about drinking.

Marc drinks. Andrew drives. This partnership has led to one of the most-productive Celtic music groups in Texas. Though one half of the Brobdingnagian Bards does not drink, this doesn’t stop the duo from having a lot of fun singing their favorite Irish Drinking Songs. You don't have to drink alcohol to enjoy this fun compilation of the Brobdingnagian Bards most-popular songs about drinking.

We went through our earlier CDs and picked our favorites songs about drinking and put them on one CD. All of the songs are newly remastered. You'll find songs from A Faire To Remember, Songs of Ireland, Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales, and even a track from our first CD, Marked By Great Size. Plus, there are five new songs currently unavailable that we hope to release on one of our next CDs.

Special thanks to Michael and Evo of SliceOfSciFi.com who inspired the album. Thanks to Deb who helped inspire the idea for the CD cover which was photographed and designed by Marc Gunn.

I absolutely love this CD. I listen to it over and over again.

Indeed the Holy Grail
As a huge fan of tradional Irish drinking songs, I must admit this is the finest collection I stumbled upon. The Bards really know how to give this kind of music a twist of it's own. I really appreciate the fact that they are themselves and not the somemaniest band that try to copy a tune the same way all over and over again but still stay remain loyal to the roots of it.

The perfect Pub Sing-A-Long!
The perfect Pub Sing-A-Long! The Brobdingnagian Bards have summonned the spirits of Ireland, her pubs and taverns on this CD. I've enjoyed singing-a-long with this incredible CD in my car on long drives as much as sharing it with friends on boisterous nights at home. A must have CD for any Irishman!

Makes Me Want to Drink Beer

Makes me yearn for a pint!
I listen to this CD most often (don't you dare laugh) at work. It takes the edge off of having to sit for hours in a cubicle. My co-workers always chuckle because I can usually be found singing along, clapping and slapping my desk along with the music. I love this CD as it has almost all of my favorite drinking songs and they're done very well! I'm always disappointed when I go out to the pub since their scheduled performers rarely pull these songs off as well as the Bards versions. Now I'm spoiled. LOL
If I had to complain about anything it would be that I seem to listen it so much that I can get some songs stuck in my head for days.

Music you would expect to hear playing in the pubs
If you’ve ever dreamed of walking into a pub like you’d picture came out of the Quiet Man then this is the cd for you. Marc and Andrew have put together another awesome cd of tunes that make you want to head down to the local pub and lift a pint. This is one cd that always helps put me in a better mood and keeps me chuckling along. Each song, whether a traditional drinking song or not manages to extol the virtues and dangers of booze. The song choices capture the joviality that you’re not likely to find outside of a darkened bar.

The Holy Grail of Irish Drinking Songs
These are very funny! I translated one of them (Seven Drunken Nights)in Czech - Marc knows about it and he has read it because I sent him my translation. We already sing it - how say you it? - when we are together alongside our camp-fire and I am certain that it will be folk-song very soon! We are some party with boats - kanoes, I mean, and we are used to go by stream down on our beautiful river Vltava with its georgeous sandy meanders ... and by nights we are used to do some fire and to do some dinner and then to sing some songs, you know, and to have some drink, I reckon that people are the same in entire world...and songs connect us.
