Calico – Songdogs

Songdogs is the second album by Irish band Calico and takes its name from the book written by the Dublin-born author Colum McCann.

This album contains ten tracks, seven are original instrumentals, one is an original song and two are contemporary songs.

The new album features a 5-piece line up of Tola Custy (fiddle), Deirdre Moynihan (fiddle, vocals), Diarmaid Moynihan (pipes/ whistles), Donncha Moynihan (guitars) and Pat Marsh (bouzouki).

Songdogs is an outstanding album of scintillating Celtic rhythms mixed with moments of intimate and unspoilt vocal charm. From the haunting pipes of the “Elysian Fields”, the tragic lyric of the “Metal Drums”, to the surprisingly uplifting “Midnight at the Mausoleum”, and the fast paced dexterity of “Hooverville”: which, all-in-all, was definitely our bag.
