The Irish Sea Sessions 2010
Recorded live at Liverpool Philharmonic
Cat. No. LPISSCD001

Friday 22 October 2010

The first ever Irish Sea Sessions concert recorded live at Liverpool Philharmonic on Friday 22 October 2010, part of Liverpool Irish Festival 2010.

With the atmosphere and attitude of a session, but in a concert hall, the inaugural Irish Sea Sessions brought together musicians from both sides of the Irish Sea to explore the shared music and special bond between Liverpool and Ireland in an electrifying performance of tunes and songs.

Featuring traditional instrumentalists and singers, and other musicians who started out in pop, rock and even punk, but have found themselves inspired by music from the Irish diaspora, this album is a unique collection of contemporary and traditional music that captures brilliantly the incredible atmosphere of the inaugural sessions of 2010.
