Folk-Legacy's newest CD, "Irish in America" came out this week.

"Irish in America" is subtitled "A Musical Record of the Irish People in the United States 1780 - 1980" and that's what it is - 14 songs about the Irish-American experience from the Revolutionary War onwards. It features many of the finest musicians on the New York City Irish scene including 5 All-Ireland Champions. I sing 9 of the songs; my singing partner, Bob Conroy sings another 5. There are 4 Irish dance tunes (jigs and reels) well played on fiddle, flute and uillean pipes. Two of the musicans are child prodigys and were 15 and 16 when the recording took place.

Sandy Paton started a thread about "Irish in America" here and Big Mick, who has heard it, gives it 2 thumbs up. Mick liked it so much that he must've e-mail the Pope because Sandy took an order from the Vatican a couple of days later.

You can listen to a sound sample at the Folk-Legacy website. If you like Irish music, I really think you should give it a listen because it is quite unique.

Thanks for listening.

All the best,
Dan Milner
