The Black Irish Band has just released it's new 25th CD album,
"Give us All Yer Whiskey" (Songs of Hard-rock miners & Hard-luck sailors).
The new album contains song ballads of the Gold & Silver Mining Regions of the
American West. Many of the songs, original and traditional, take the modern world to the
front door of our 1800s California & Nevada. The album is very up-beat and progressive
and it's style is Folk, Americana, and Celtic Pub-Rock. The album has a total of 16 tracks
on it, full of life and gusto. Song stories are about miners heading to California for the
Gold Boom of 1849, leaving their ships in San Fransisco Harbour, and seeking their future
in the mines. Instrumentation on the new Cd is 100% Black Irish band, with driving
Melodeon, Banjo, Fiddle, and Guitar. All the boys in the band sing on this one also..So
grab a whiskey, lift you voice, and take a trip back to the gold mines.
