Eek a mouse inna trad style

Postby t-woc » Tue Nov 29, 2005 11:23 am

for those that aren't familiar with the irish trad scene it basically comes in two flavours, one being watered down 'trad hits' usually found in temple bar in dublin and other tourist spots and the other a free for all who are musically minded to sit in the corner and drink & play whatever instrument you can, usually fiddles, pipes, whistles spoon etc.. the later being the rowdier and far more fun variety, and it was the Sine in Cork city, a particularly (in)famous trad pub that we found ourselves continuing eek's 50th birthday celebrations downing the black stuff from lunchtime till close.

here is a 6 minute recording...

A nice mix of roots from different cultures. A bit like Ri Ra on the Ghetto Priest album. I can hear an Andy Kershaw session in the offing if Eek enjoys this sort of thing...

It also reminds me of the local reggae band here, who are called The Paddy Rasta band.

What is prog dub?

Yes, and also during his visit in Poland, Eek A Mouse was dressed in a traditional Bavarian roof maker (dachdecker) clothes:



seems like he loves the traditional stuff!
