Album Review

The rotating cast of characters who have done time in musician and folklorist Mick Maloney's Green Fields of America since the ensemble's conception in 1978 include Irish folk heavyweights like Liz Carroll, Karan Casey, Seamus Egan, Eileen Ivers, and Tommy Sands, as well as a host of talented dancers including the Lord of the Dance himself, Michael Flatley. Formed primarily for the stage and festival circuit, the Green Fields of America have only released two albums, 1989's The Green Fields of America: Live in Concert and this 2009 eponymous studio album. With a lineup that includes Maloney, John Doyle, Billy McComiskey, Robbie O'Connell, Athena Tergis, and guests like legendary uilleann piper Jerry O'Sullivan, The Green Fields of America is a decidedly top-notch collection of traditional Irish folk filtered through the talented fingers and throats of some of Irish America's greatest talents. There are no cold, calculated keyboard vistas, programmed beats, or freakishly out of place fretless bass solos to be found here, only a small army of talented men and women sitting down for a session in a pub that happens to have a sound booth, expensive microphones, and a mixing board as opposed to a collection of fine spirits and ales. One hopes the next round doesn't take another 30 years to get to the table.

The Green Fields of America

It doesn’t get any better than this. The world’s greatest musicians and vocalists are together again and the chemistry is beyond compare. I have waited so long to hear the sound of Mick Maloney’s voice paired up with Robbie o Connell’s. Each and every guest and participant brings an extraordinary magical sound that creates heart thumping sound joy and elation that is undeniably Heaven on Earth. I have been fortunate to have had the trip of a lifetime hearing Mick sing in Ireland and it never ceases to amaze me when I hear his voice, I want to stop the world and listen to every lyric…This was worth the wait, the Green Fields of America just got even better…as if that was possible..Purchase this ASAP and you will not be sorry.

I remeber

I have never forgotten. When I was 7 or 8, they were in New Mexico passing through. Happened to stop at my grandma's and ended up eating supper with my family. Played some wonderful music and left a tape with my dad. I listened to it for years and it got chewed in the cassette player when I was 11. I listened to it over and over. Absolutely fell in love with it.
