ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A quintet comprised of some of America’s most talented, young musicians, Bua have been described by Irish Music Magazine as “the essence of a superb band,” their sound “a throwback to the playing of the 1960s and 1970s, keeping the music down the path of tradition” and their 2006 release, Live at Martyrs’, “a work without gimmicks, where the musicianship is of the highest quality.” It is no surprise then that Bua, lending to its Irish Gaelic meaning of ‘innate gift,’ have quickly risen to the status of America’s premier traditional Irish music ensemble.


As a band, Bua have performed at numerous festivals including Boston’s prestigious Irish Connections Festival, The Milwaukee Irish Festival, Cleveland’s Irish Cultural Festival, Celtic Fest Chicago and The Saline Celtic Festival. As individuals they’ve shared the stage with a host of top Irish musicians including Martin Hayes, David Munnelly, Liz Carroll, Larry Nugent, Paddy Keenan, Aoife Clancy, Pat Broaders, Dennis Cahill, John Williams and more!

Bill Margeson of the Irish American News captures their essence concisely: “Clearly, this group is no locally-based collection of musicians trying to break out of Chicago. This is a group that has established itself [both] individually and as a group in the eyes and ears of the traditional community…As other bands change, disband or simply fade away, the tradition is blessed by what seems to be an inexhaustible pool of talent that comes to the front of the stage. It is Bua’s time. Here they come.”

In the age of digital recording, it is so rare to catch a traditional Celtic folk band that simply does its thing without the trappings of modern technology. Bua, one of America’s finest Irish music ensembles, has no need for trickery, patchwork, or pandering. Their raw, symbiotic, performances sound as rich and full as any big LA production but leave all the subtlety and sense of space intact. Whether burning through a fiery folk dance or tugging on your soul with a tearful ballad, this band of highly skilled instrumentalists brings new life to these very old songs.

I am not going to get fancy here. Just plain and simple! This is a great CD - I enjoy listening to it at home when I am puttering and in the car. This is purely great Irish Trad music at its very best.
I am extremely glad that I bought the CD and hope anyone who reads this will buy it too.

This CD was really worth the wait! There is so much talent here, I can't say enough how much I enjoy this one. Every song is unique and different, it makes my day when I listen! Thanks Bua. Your talent is amazing!
