â€œThe unending clatter of jackhammers was what drew me to my window. Down below, city workers scurried like ants collecting the rubble left in the wake their brothersâ€™ destruction. The once proud and well-crafted cobblestone sidewalk torn up in favor of a new walkway of cement and steel. It gave me pause to consider this thing we call progress. What stories would those bricks tell us if only given the voice? Does progress really move us forward, or is it yet another way for us to erase and rewrite history? I turned, walked back to my desk and began to write. The song â€œCobblestoneâ€ was born.â€
Seelie Court is proud to offer their brand new, long awaited release, â€œCobblestoneâ€.
It's filled to the brim with Seelie takes on classic Celtic songs (like â€œBedlam Boysâ€, â€œHares on the Mountainâ€, â€œPaper of Pinsâ€, â€œP is for Paddyâ€ and â€œJohnny Minerâ€), topped off with a sprinkling of maritime amusement (in Randy Dandy O and The Wreck of the Nancy Lee), and served up with a heaping side of original songs by Jon Baade (including the smash Parrothead inspired hit â€œDancin in the Sandâ€) and topped off with one original tune by Lindsay Jensen.
Not only is it a â€œmust ownâ€ for every Seelie Court fan, itâ€™s a â€œmust ownâ€ for every fan of Celtic music!
