Product Overview

We can't quite remember when the idea for an ''all Irish song album'' first dawned on us but we know it was a good while ago. For one reason or another it never happened, until now. Finally we have recorded what we hope is the best of the best. A collection of great Irish songs penned by poets, playwrights and vagabonds, with a distinct Young Dubliners touch.

On Dec 8th 2006, we entered the studio only to emerge seventeen days later with thirteen songs of love, war, emigration, incarceration and drinking. Along the way we gained an even deeper respect for the melodies and lyrics of these writers. They evoked many emotions and feelings not only in those of us from Ireland who previously knew these songs but also in the Americans who were hearing them for the first time. We hope you will enjoy listening to them as much as we enjoyed recording them.

And so we give you, With All Due Respect, The Irish Sessions...

Artist Bio
Young DublinersFans have been waiting long and impatiently for the Young Dubliners take on the great songs born of Ireland and finally, they will be rewarded by 429 Records' release of With All Due Respect, The Irish Sessions. Keith Roberts and his raucous band of Irish transplants and local Los Angeles musicians locked themselves away in the studio for seventeen days at the end of 2006 to focus on creating a definitive shout out to the masters of Irish song past and present. Roberts refers to the song selection as the best of the best representing poets, playwrights and vagabonds, Indeed, centuries old traditional melodies shimmer bookended by distinctive romps through the songcraft of Shane McGowan which brush up against the wistfully sad lyrics of Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh.The Irish Sessions is nothing if not a labor of love for the Young Dubliners. What was once a project that seemed to take forever to come to fruition ironically came together in a rapid fire recording session. Great thing too as the album retains a remarkably raw live feel. Although better known for their brand of hard hitting original Celtic rock music, reinterpreting the work of other Irish songwriters takes the band to passionate new heights. The songs evoke deep emotions that burst through the organic production. Produced by Tim Boland and mixed by Ken Sluiter, Sessions remains poignant while unearthing the rocking soul found in the traditional and the modern.Says Dubliners irrepressible lead singer/founder Keith Roberts of the overwhelming demand for an album of Irish covers: "They asked for it, so we gave it to them! And had a lot of fun along the way."
