Wild Geese

Live in Rome 1979


The 1974 created Irish revival band Wild Geese occurred qualitatively very different phases. As one of the most in demand formations at the German Folk market they flared between fastidious instrumental folk and the usual angloirischen Rabaukenliedern, which heard a public inspired by the Dubliners so gladly. Initial members were Peadar Ó hUallaigh (flat steel bar, t-wh, concertina, voc) from Sligo, Norman King (bodhrán, voc) from Dublin, Tony Small (g, voc) from Galway and Steve power (f, bj, mandolin, g). Historicalconsciously and with the shot Rebel Spirit, which one (particularly at the continent) expected of Irish, designated themselves it after the 34,000 Irish patriots, which went to the defeat against the Englishmen 1691 at the Boyne River into the exile. After power 1978 left the volume, Mick Ryan (f, mandolin) from Edenderry and the Uilleann Piper Eoin Ó Duignean from Dundrum entered. With their last occupation and one of the best albums of the Irish Folkgeschichte (in Full Flight) Geese their artistic high point reached the game. Beside original occupation were Mick Fitzgerald (g, voc) as well as two recent rising talents of the scene, Donal Lunnys brother Mánus Lunny (bouzouki, g, voc) and Gerry O ’ Connor (f, bj) been added. The two latter ones contributed their self-willed instrument valley compositions, Mánus sang in the Duett with guest Máiréad Ní Mhaonaigh (later front woman von Altan) the melancholy song Bríd Óg Ní Mháille, M. Fitzgerald shone with a outstanding arranged version of a Hungarian Ballade (Anathea), collected by Bela Bartók, and N. King decided the album with its schrulligen song over its friendship with a Londoner rat.

Hello Lizz!

Would you please ask your followers if anyone can tell who's that folk singer? It's a recording from the 60s or 70s as far as I know. Should be a Canadian from around Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Dear Lizardson.

Thanks! The record I knew was 'In full flight' and I liked it very much. So I can't wait to hear this. It is from around the same time, so it must be from the same line-up.

Again, thanks from the Netherlands!

Thanks for this. Very decent quality for a bootleg.

I hope you'll post some of the Wild Geese studio albums. They are all out of print and hard to find.
