This weeks Mary K Burke Show & Album of the week 12/11/2019

Album Of the week Tommy Sands “Fair play to you all”

The album title itself is an oft used throwaway line in Ireland but in the pen-hand of Tommy Sands it becomes much more profound and an overture to the album itself.

“He continues to be a veritable powerhouse of creativity in world music and writes new songs that touch the nerve of all those concerned with social justice and enduring peace between people of all creeds and ethnicities.

“Tommy Sands is one of the most productive and prolific performers in the history of Irish music and indeed one of the truly great songwriters in global music. His songs have become part of a long and venerable tradition that now reaches all over the world.

“He is a true humanist gifted with a unique ability to reach across ethnic divides particularly in his homeland, a territory that has been racked by divisions for literally hundreds of years. This remarkable recording with the extraordinary musician Steve Cooney is sure to be an enduring contribution to Irish and world music. ” Professor Michael (Mick) Moloney, New York University.
