Banshee - Bust Before (2004)

This is the second album from the very talented Irish Folk group from the southern region of Germany. Recorded 8 years after their debut album the music is a combination of Irish traditional songs and some tunes, which are from Artists like Lyle Lovett, Mikis Theodorakis or The Waterboys.

And if you list to these tracks you´ll find out, that Banshee is able to play in very different style without loosing their identity.
Three tracks were own compositions and these musicians did a real fine job ... So we can hope, more Banshee recordings will come very soon !
