celebration of St. Patrick's Day, Celtic Radio is announcing the
Radio Album of the Year
. They are from the Czech Republic and they play Celtic
Music in all of its shapes and forms. From haunting Breton melodies to raunchy
traditional Irish songs. They have performed at festivals across Europe, in
Italy, France, Poland, Germany and of course - the Czech Republic.
They are a band that has been distilling and maturing since the mid-nineties,
not only a journey through different Celtic genres, but a journey reflecting the
development of the band over the years: discovery, experimentation, exuberance
and innovation are a few words to describe the 2010 Celtic Radio Album of the
year winners called Poitin
, is a master piece of traditional Celtic music that is a
breathless and enchanting collection of intricate, elegant and downright foot
stomping Celtic music! Containing a wide range of Celtic music from Calton Weaver,
Paddy's Polas, Four Drunken Maidens to the foot stomping Emily. Our Celtic Radio
Album of the Year award acknowledges musicians who have made exceptional
contributions to the genre of Celtic Music. By every means possible, Poitin has
excelled in providing an album that meets every criteria of this prestigious and
notable award. We have really enjoyed this talented group from the Czech Republic
and aside from being a great group of people, Poitin shows a perfection of music
and instrument that will have you listening to these tracks over and over.
Beautiful arrangements and masterful talent!
