ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Born in a small town in Nebraska, percussionist Steve Holloway migrated to New York City by way of Denver in the early 1990's. With a strong jazz and pop background, he began playing Irish music when Seamus Egan asked him to record on the Soundtrack of the movie "The Brother's McMullen" in 1995, and later on Seamus' solo CD "When Juniper Sleeps". This lead to numerous tours with the popular Irish group Solas (lead by Seamus) and later the Broadway production of Riverdance in 2000. Steve frequently tours with the North American touring company of Riverdance (the Boyne), and was a founding member of Sin e Ri-Ra at Nine Fine Irishmen in Las Vegas. He's also recorded with Solas, Cathie Ryan, Bonnie Rideout, Marie and Martin Reilly, The McCabes, Mary Rafferty, The Bridies, Jerry O'Sullivan, Karen Casey and Whirligig.

"Next Stop, Seelie Court", is a fun, happy blast of traditional and original tunes. The recording features some of New York's finest musicians, including Donal Clancy and John Reilly (guitar), Marie Reilly, Bonnie Rideout and Maz Swift (fiddle), Mary Rafferty (whistle), Tony Daveron (bouzouki), Martin Reilly (accordian), Donie Ryan (banjo) and Darryl Conlon (mondolin). While the CD is rhythmic and lively, it's all about the tunes, the percussion driving the music but never overpowering the rest of the musicians.

There's plenty of bodhran, but also numerous grooves laid down on Steve's "mondokit", a unique drumset comprised of congas, djembes, bongos and doumbeks, integrated in with snare, toms, kick and cymbals.

Soothing & Uplifting
Bought this CD 5 years ago, and I still listen to it during long drives because the music keeps me aware of natures surroundings which never makes me feel alone. Love the whole audio visual feel on a sunny day; soothing and uplifting.

Steve Holloway, bodhran player and percussionist of Solas, Riverdance and the Bonnie Rideout Scottish Trio, delivers a fiery, infectious album of traditional Irish and Scottish jigs and reels for trad connoisseurs and amateurs alike. Featuring some of NYC's finest musicians, the tunes are fleshed out with fiddle, accordion, bouzouki, guitar, whistle, banjo and more, fusing the traditional with the contemporary in an exhilarating spirit reminiscent of groups such as Lunasa, Solas, and Dervish. Highly recommended for our Guinness-loving friends.

Great for set of tunes in a NY setting!
I first heard the Geese in the Bog set on Marc Gunn's Irish and Celtic Music Podcast, and immediately had to come here and buy the CD. I was interested at first because I wanted to learn Donie Ryan's banjo style, but I found that the CD was chock full of great musicians playing settings of tunes that I don't always hear in local sessions. It's a good learning resource and a pleasurable listen.

Love this CD
I ordered this CD after seeing Steve Holloway perform at Christmas and am really happy with it. In fact, I just ordered a second copy to give as a gift!

A good set of tunes with an interesting blend of instruments.
This music has a lot of nice melodies combined with driving rhythms. The drums are prominent, working well with the music, but they are never excessive. Although this CD includes a lot of music with traditional forms (jigs and reels), it doens't neatly fit into the celtic category. Some of the songs have an almost funky or jazzy feel, others are reminiscent of bluegrass or folk music. The instrumentation, especially the drums, spans the globe. If this CD wasn't fun to make, it's certainly fun to listen to.
