Recorded live on St. Patrick’s Day 2007 at historic Godfrey Daniels, in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to celebrate the band’s 10th Anniversary. This is a great mix of band favorites from the first decade of performing, fan requests and one or two new selections as well.
Released in September of 2001, this is the band’s sophomore album recorded under the Bummer Tent records label. The album consists of new takes on traditional songs and tunes blended with fresh, original compositions.
“A great blend of vocals and instrumentals. Something on this one for every lover of Irish Music. Saw the band perform live at the Celtic Classic Festival and I am very glad to bring this band back to our listeners here in the Chicago area. I expect that we’ll be seeing more of this group in the very near future.” Shay Clark 90.9 FM WDCB
Blackwater’s self-titled debut album was released in September 1999 under the Bummer Tent Records label. The band’s developing style, hallmark vocals and signature instrumental arrangements are all captured in this balanced offering of tunes and songs (including two original compositions) from both the Irish and Scottish traditions. Of all the selections, “Streets of London” has become one of the bands longest lasting pieces and is still the most requested song at the band’s live performances even today nearly twenty years on.
