Sound Neighbours

Sound Neighbours


Smithsonian's Sound Neighbours: Contemporary Music in Northern Ireland strikes a winning balance between the old and new guard with straight-up traditional fare from the likes of Cathal Hayden ("Splendid Isolation/Mrs. Lawries") and Barry Kerr ("Ships in Full Sail/The Three Sisters,") Celtic-tinged alternative rock from Neil Hannon's Divine Comedy ("Sunrise") and wistful ballads from Bap Kennedy ("Shankill and the Falls") and Briege Murphy ("Verdant Braes of Screen"). ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
