Ireland a Troubled Romance Review
The third album released by Henry Marten’s Ghost – Ireland a Troubled Romance is a mature & gloriously unpretentious celebration of the tragedy & hope running through Irish social & political history. The mixture of haunting ballads, scattered with a couple of traditional jigs is a triumph. The strains of longing, anger & sadness in the voice of vocalist Pádraig Lalor sustain throughout each of the 11 songs. The fiddle playing of Piotr Jordan adds a rounded & rich quality to each song’s rendition. The interpretation of each of these traditional & newer songs is highly individual & will undoubtedly reflect the emotions of many of the Irish Diaspora.
Ireland – A Troubled Romance is definitely for listening to late in the evening, in a quietly lit room when the day leaves you only enough energy to dream.
This album is one of the best collections of traditional Irish folk music I have heard and I challenge any lover of Irish music to disagree!
