Daily Disc The Guinness Brothers – Live Craic (2019)
Cliff de Booy
Since I heard this band play, I’m dreaming of a big Castlefest party where the whole festival is jumping and dancing!!!!! I couldn’t sit still on my chair listening to this album and the singles! It is one big party surprise! I won’t give away the details, because that would be considered ‘spoiling’. Just listen, dance, and feel that festival vibe coming back to you!
I can reveal a bit more on the origins of The Guinness Brothers though. Two men came together to form this band ass you can read on their website: ‘Colm Kelly, an Irish man living in the south of Portugal, and Rodrigo Carreira, a Portuguese man who is often mistaken for an Irish man himself, combine vocal harmonies with an acoustic guitar and a mandolin to bring you everything from Irish music to rock, pop, reggae and even the latest hits! They found that adding comedy to music, not just Irish, is tantamount to Craic. And follow the formula ever since.‘
Don’t miss this album, it’s really fun! I can’t pick my favourite songs, they’re all very effervescent!
cheerful greetings, Ilona CeltCast
