ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An Dóchas, Irish for “The Hope,” is a talented, young Irish band with cross-cultural influences, presenting traditional Irish music fused with the energy of Rock and the versatility of Jazz. A driving rhythm section of guitar, bass, and drums supports an array of traditional instruments including the Uilleann pipes, whistles, Bodhrán, and fiddle. With a strong base of instrumental tunes, the band incorporates moving ballads as well as rowdy, comical vocals, into their sets creating an emotionally dynamic performance. Using traditional Irish and brilliant original music to accompany explosive Irish step dancing, An Dóchas provides an energetic and uplifting performance appealing to audiences of all ages and musical preferences.

For the past several years, An Dóchas has had the privilege to work with the Haran Irish Dancers, who have been performing for over a decade. The dancers’ tours have included stops in Austria and Japan, and multiple trips to the Irish Step Dancing World Championships. Together, An Dóchas and the Haran Irish Dancers have performed to sold-out audiences throughout the U.S. They have shared the stage with such internationally acclaimed artists as Cherish the Ladies, Solas, and Chris Thile of Nickle Creek. Their regular venues include the An Ri Ra Festival in Montana, various college campuses, the Metropolitan Performing Arts Theater of Spokane, and numerous others. An Dóchas also has the privilege of working with Michael Londra, the former lead singer of Riverdance Broadway. With Michael, they have entertained at countless venues such as Atlanta’s Spivey Hall, a five-day stint in Dollywood, Tennessee, and the Corn Palace Festival.

This is an exciting year for An Dóchas. Their first CD, Dragonfly Redux, was awarded Celtic Instrumental Album of the Year by Just Plain Folks Worldwide Music Awards. They are currently in the studio recording their 2nd album, and have a DVD scheduled for release in December 2006. The DVD,'Beginnings', includes footage from three live performances and features thirteen of the Haran Irish Dancers.

outstanding CD
Ordered CD after seeing them perform w/Michael Londra. Very much enjoying first taste of this genre. Impressive array of talent in a good variety of songs from slow and haunting to fun and upbeat. Looking forward to next CD.

Excellent!
I found An Dochas on Myspace and instantly liked them, so I finally bit the bullet and ordered Dragonfly Redux. Excellent blend of world influences in Celtic music!

Mary Ann

An Dochas
I love your music and eagerly await your next CD. My young adult sons, who are into heavy metal , love it as well.

Rob Wiltbank

A great hybrid of trad and world music
While An Dochas isn't Irish trad in the strictest of senses, it's a great jammin' blend of trad and world music that makes it a favorite for me in the car. The finger-style guitar and whistle mainly gives that traditional back, while the bodhran, djembe, kit and other drum work add a great flare that crosses it over.

In addition the CD has a track of a female vocalist singing in sean nos, though accompanied, which is absolutely lovely. If you're into strict trad or celtic rock/crossover and are looking for something fun to listen to, this is the CD for you.

Amber

Amazing
This CD was great, everything I wanted. I cant help but (try to) dance when I put it in :-)

Marty van der Staak

Irish folk as you haven't heard it before
Brilliant traditional tunes pollished up and brought to you with groovin' rhythms. One of the best new bands related to Irish music.

Jacqueline B

This is all I hoped for and more!
This is exactly what I was looking for and it came to me so fast and well protected. I love my CD and am looking forward to their next one!

Nick Metcalf

Great music! Whistle playing is superb!
Great music. I found this band myspacing for music similar to what I play (www.myspace.com/nmetcalf)And I was so impressed with the video clips and songs that I had to order the CD and I was not dissapointed! If you love Irish music with a little mixture of other things in it then you will defenitely enjoy this CD!
