From Galway to Dublin Alban Fuam
- Aug. 12, 2016
-- "From Galway to Dublin" includes many renditions of well-known Irish and Celtic tunes such as "The Rising of the Moon" which is an Irish ballad recounting a battle between the United Irishmen and the British Army during the Irish Rebellion of 1798; "Rocky Road to Dublin" featuring Jes Sadler, about a man's experiences as he travels to Liverpool in England from his home in Tuam in Ireland and a special rendition of the traditional English ballad about the Yorkshire town of Scarborough called "Scarborough fair" (originally brought to success by Simon & Garfunkel), here performed by the silky voice of Alison Medini.
"From Galway to Dublin" also comprises traditional drinking songs such as "Streams of Whiskey", jigs and reels to dance or just to cheer you up in front of a nice pint of Guinness. Some examples are The Monaghan Jig, Duelling Violins / The Connaught Man's Rambles / The Boys of Malin, The Humours of Scarriff / Old Hag You Have Killed Me / Morrison's Jig among the others.
After their first studio album "Whiskey 'n Beer" Alban Fuam could express all their Irish vibe in a well-sounding album, published by the label Maxy Sound and recorded by the Italian music producer Max Titi.
At the moment Alban Fuam are taking part in all the biggest Irish music events in Italy and their tour covers some of the major countries in Europe.
