Talk of the Town: The Bonny Men

Word gets around  fast for these guys..The Bonny Men!

For those who love music in the tradition of The Bothy band will love the sound this traditional group from Dublin . Bring together the knack for exuberant playing, charming vocals and great choice of arrangements then you get a good album like their self-titled debut. They are only a year old but they have accomplished so much. Read what Tradconnect has to say about the album.

They bring something to the Trad scene…that kind of feeling you get when the streets are wet after the rain. A sort of freshness and magic..something nostalgic but undeniably fresh. The album was recorded in Windmill Lane Studios Dublin..which I recall as the same place where Clannad recorded their Banba album in 1992.
