    Leading off with the track "Northern Man"--which proclaims "I was born on the border/my father from Tyrone, my mother Donegal/I've heard the talk on both sides of the border/I'm a Northern Man"--the Smithsonian's fine collection SOUND NEIGHBOURS: CONTEMPORARY MUSIC IN NORTHERN IRELAND seeks to solidify more than six centuries of musical history and argue that Northern Ireland is neither Irish nor British but a land with a cultural and social identity all its own. From traditional fiddle and uilleann pipe reels to neo-folk with tinges of twang, SOUND NEIGHBOURS collects exclusively Northern Irish folk artists and is a riveting listen from start to finish. Check out the goose-pump inducing a capella highlights "Omagh Town" by Roisin White and "A Stor, A Stor, A Ghra" by Geraldine Bailey.

  • Critic Reviews
    Dirty Linen (pp.79-80) - "The threads of tradition, family, and landscape join in Tommy Sands' ballad 'There Were Roses,' a true story set on the border in County Down, which puts a human face on the Troubles and encourages listeners to do the same."
