Patrick Street always sound great. These four masters of Irish music freshen the genre with diverse elements drawn from the deep roots and new branches of Celtic music. The band’s newest album is Compendium, a collection that surveys their prolific musical output from over the past fifteen years, packed with the kind of great performances we’ve come to expect from them. Always innovative, fiddler Kevin Burke of The Bothy Band, singer/bouzouki player Andy Irvine from Planxty, De Dannan veteran accordionist Jackie Daly and multi-instrumentalist Ged Foley of The House Band have chosen this collection of traditional songs and tunes, which includes a live version of their showpiece "Music for a Found Harmonium." Other musicians on this classic set include past Patrick Street members Arty McGlynn, Gerry O’Beirne, and James Kelly, plus Donal Lunny, Bill Whelan of Riverdance, and piper Declan Masterson, with liner notes by acclaimed bluegrass musician Tim O’Brien.
