It began as so many formidable projects do, with a modest idea: get four recognized masters to join forces for a tour, bill it as "The Legends of Irish Music," and make a recording. Built around the core group of fiddler Kevin Burke (ex-Bothy Band, now leader of Open House), Jackie Daly (ex-DeDannan) and singer/guitarist Andy Irvine (ex-Planxty, and currently with the EastWind Trio), Patrick Street has indeed evolved into "legendary" status! On their fifth album, Corner Boys, they welcome new recruit Ged Foley (formerly of the Battlefield Band, and now in The House Band), whose inventive guitar licks provide ideal underpinning for Andy Irvine’s intricate songs and Kevin Burke and Jackie Daly’s seamless duets on fiddle and accordion. Corner Boys adds yet more luster to a group whose tightly executed arrangements and unparalleled musicianship know no equal.
