The Chieftains - The Fiddling Ladies

Genre: world

This is a tuneful, lilting track with a strong rhythmic sense. It’s long, but it should be capable of holding your attention and it ought, by rights, to make you want to dance. If the percussion seems at odds with the playing, or if it just sounds like any of the dozens of ‘Oirish’ bands in any of the dozens of tourist-trap bars in Dublin, don’t blame the performers or the recording. We did, for ages, and we were wrong.
