Adventures With WholeWorldBand #2

At first glance, WholeWorldBand is a little dominated by guy-with-a-guitar seed tracks. But search around a bit and you find a much more interesting variety. As a Dublin-based startup company, it’s not surprising there is a disproportionate number of Irish musicians on WWB. I’ve always been particularly fond of traditional Irish music, and here are contributions I made to 4 traditional seed tracks.

The first two are with fiddler Ger Doyle. I added bouzouki and piano.

The next is “The Parting Glass”, sung by Eleanor Shanley. This was a bit of a challenge because the seed track was  unaccompanied singing. I play electric bouzouki and ebow.

Finally, a bit of hardcore singing-in-Irish trad from Rónán Ó Snodaigh. Shane McKenna (who seems to play on almost everything on WWB!) plays the guitar; I play the accordion.
