 Review - Danu: All Things Considered   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Danu is a septet of 20-something Irish musicians (the one non-Irishman, American fiddler Jessie Smith, makes his last appearance on this album, which also features contributions from his replacement, Oisin MacAuley) who have created a sensation in Irish traditional circles on the basis of their two previous albums and non-stop international touring.
With seven players, most doubling and tripling on their instrumental contributions, Danu is capable of weaving a rich tapestry of sound, blending traditional jigs, reels and airs with more contemporary material.
His voice is so good, in fact, that you have to pay some attention to notice that the instrumental aspect of the band is nearly as remarkable.
