*Editor’s Note: This is the most up-to-date installment of Mike Farragher’s “TAYSHT” series, his new column and podcast exploring Irish America’s partnership with food items, influenced in section by Stanley Tucci’s “Taste: My Life Through Meals.” You can examine the past installment right here.
Celtic Cross hasn’t just been an outfit that has rocked the highways and waterways in and about Manhattan for much more than 25 years, which in and of itself is no modest feat. They’ve been the residence band and soundtrack to the knowledge of becoming an Irish American in these elements.
“Those Ended up The Days” from their vintage “Shores of America” is the Irish American equivalent of Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start off the Hearth,” as lead singer Kathleen Charge fires off “memories significant and small” that range from phase dancing courses to summer season evenings in East Durham, the epicenter of the Irish Catskills.
These are reminiscences so several of us can relate to, which is why the band is a staple of Irish festivals yr just after year.
This 7-piece band is fronted by Rate, her brothers John (an All Eire accordion participant), and Kenny (Al Ireland fiddle) Vesey. They are joined by a group of completed and skilled NYC gamers – Wally Ensor on guitar, Pat Dineen on bass/keys, Frankie McCormick on mandolin/banjo, and Ryan Cavan on drums.
Their fans have been waiting around ages for new music (their final disc was “Saoirse’s Heart” in 2014) and in the latest TAYSHT podcast job interview with Kathleen, John, and Kenny, they expose that they are operating on new audio.
“We’ve bought absolutely nothing to prove to everyone but ourselves,” John suggests. “We are having our time with this just one we are hoping to have something by the stop of the calendar year.”
The Vesey lads are enthused by the conventional tunes they’re crafting and they dealt with this author to a new song, “Danny Boy,” a sunny SoCal adore track that seems amazing!
The siblings dish about what competition in the All Ireland competitions meant to their family members and, via matches of giggles, recall humorous tales about rising up as the very first spouse and children of Irish American tunes (my text, not theirs).
