Irish in spirit

The painting of the countryside in County Clare, just above Doolin, on the cover of the CD Irish Music suggested that All Hands Around was an Irish band. Neither the list of traditional tracks on the back nor my first impression of the music when I popped the disc into my stereo suggested otherwise. So I did a bit of a doubletake when I realized they're based on my side of the Atlantic -- specifically, New England.

I think most Irish music lovers would be glad to own these four as natives of spirit, if not blood. The instrumental sets in particular have the sound of an authentic session band, and a handful of original compositions fit neatly in with the traditional tunes.
