Album Notes
Black Velvet has been playing Irish music since 1981.Over the years, it went through many peronnel changes. Its repertoire also changed to include a considerable number of tunes written by band members. These draw their influences from various sources - Irish, Breton, Galician, Balkan and Israeli. This combination is well represented here, on the band's first album.

Guest artists:
Jerry O'Saullivan - Uilliann pipes
Emer Mayock - Flute & whistle

What I have been looking for,
This is pure celtic music at it's finest.
I have been searching for something like this, now I have found it.

Larry Kaminsky

Black Velvet
This band gave a performance at Kibbutz Adamit in northern Israel in the early '80s. I was there and have been a fan ever since.


Exciting music
I think they are a very fine group of musicians. They have a very clean sound, very professional.

They are not a Big name, but I don't see why, they are so tasteful.

Kevin Hauler

This is for people who really love folk music and not pop/folk
I really love this kind of folk music. It is really from the people and not from the realm of selling alot of records and being famous.
The music holds a special kind of beauty because of that reason.

Mariesa-Lize Etienne

I have the Nada world compilation cd and Black Velet is on it.
They are very good.
I enjoyed this cd and Black Velvet is a quality band.

Mariesa-Lize Etienne

this is very good, I love the mixture of cultures
I like this alot. They are on my new Nada world compilation cd. It is such a beautiful album, and I am glad they are there on it.


I must say, their music is very developed Cetlic music in comparison to others I have been hearing.
