To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Great Potato Famine, singer Dan Milner compiled this collection of Irish sea songs originally recorded between 1982 and 1997. The lyrics generally deal with topics related to the emigration of the Irish in the wake of the Famine, but not all of them are glum - there are the tragicomic "Yellow Meal" (in which a helpful citizen's Irish accent is responsible for a passenger's misdirection from a swift mail ship to a slow-moving grain carrier) and "Paddy West". Milner sings in a clear, reedy tenor voice and is accompanied minimally but expertly by an all-star cast that includes accordionist Billy McComsikey and t Mick Moloney.
Dan Milner & Guest Artists. Pirates, shanghaiers, slavers, and smugglers are just some of the central characters in this album of lusty, authentic maritime songs; others are ardent patriots, hard-pressed immigrants, and weathered sailors sheltering in the taverns of the seven seas. All are midway between some dicey spot in life and an uncertain future. Their compelling stories of bold adventure are excitingly re-told here by an all-star crew of Irish singers and musicians led by vocalist/author Dan Milner.
