ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Irish-American's Song" by David Kincaid is his latest album of authentic Irish music from the American Civil War, and is already receiving such critical accolades as "a fascinating selection of Union and Confederate Irish musical pieces.” ..."a rare treat for music lovers, Civil War enthusiasts and anyone who enjoys listening to a good Irish tenor” (Thomas G. Clemens- America's Civil War Magazine, US), and "The Irish-American’s Song’ has a powerful resonance that carries down to these troubled times. A great stocking stuffer for those interested in the Civil war and the Irish who fought in it.” (Ray O’Hanlon, The Irish Echo, NY) ..."follows, in style and intent, his deservedly praised 1998 album ‘The Irish Volunteer,’ and certainly meets the high standards set by that work.” ..."real enough to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.” (G. Leslie Sweetnam-The Wild Geese Today, Internet).
This new offering differs from David's debut effort, The Irish Volunteer, in that it consists of Irish songs from both the Union and the Confederacy in the American Civil War. The principle musicians featured are: Liz Knowles-Fiddle (Riverdance, Cherish The Ladies), Jerry O'Sullivan-Uilleann Pipes & Whistle (Shanachie recording artist), and John Whelan-Irish Button Accordion (seven time All-Ireland champion and Narada recording artist). David Kincaid handles the Lead & Harmony vocals, Guitar, Banjo, Mandolin, Bodhrán & Bones.
Extensively researched, sources for the authentic song material vary from public libraries such as the New York City Library and Brown University, to museums and private collections. A broad search was also conducted for the period graphics, relics, and photographs, most of which were previously unpublished and have been liberally incorporated into this new album's 36 page full-color booklet. This also includes complete lyrics, and historical liner notes by acclaimed Civil War author Joseph G. Bilby.

Irish American's Song
I, also, have both of David Kincaid's CDs and they are great. Most of the songs are upbeat and get you going on your way to work. I know everyone's taste in music is different but these songs made me proud to be Irish and American!!

The Irish-American's Song
I have both of David Kincaid's CDs and I absolutely love them! The music is incredible, the lyrics are touching and unforgettable. I especially like the heart-wrenching "Dreadful Engagement". I am now considering buying these two CDs as a Christmas present for my brother. Thank you David, for giving us insight into the lives of our Irish American ancestors.

William Hathaway

great CD !!!
At first listen I did not think it as good as the first CD. But like fine wine it develops with age and I find that I listen to this one more than the first. absolutely outstanding performance, great history, and perfect entertainment. Give us another.

M.B. Haak

Good
Love the voice, love the songs. First CD was a little bit better but... His work with the Brandos is also high quality.

Evelyn Fischbach


The songs are really beautiful, although a part of it is quite sadly (like the "Two brothers Mastersons"). Apart from that it is that kind of music you have to hear several times before getting totally gripped by it. But then it never lets you go again.
Last but not least, I appreciate the detailed background information given in the booklet enclosed.
