From epic sets on highand pipes and fiddle, to angelic folk songs over bouzouki and mandola, to ripping sets of Irish jigs and reels, the lads of Molly's Revenge have expanded their range on this, their seventh release.
For this stunning album they enlisted the help of award winning vocalist and accordionist Moira Smiley. Known nationally for her groundbreaking work with contemporary vocal group VOCO, Moira has proven her traditional skills by
winning the West/Midwest USA Division of the All-Ireland Singing Championship.
"The Western Shore" was produced by John Doyle, a founding member of Irish supergroup Solas. Guest performers include percussionist Fraser Stone (Old Blind Dogs) and John Doyle.
"This recording showcases the confidence and enthusiasm in their playing and their maturity as a group. Their diligence to the tradition has produced this fine collection of material--old and new--which fans of Celtic music are sure to embrace." --John Doyle
“The instruments are traditional... but the wild passion they exhibit is thoroughly modern.” — MetroSantaCruz (CA)
