The recently released CD, "Wish", by Poitín is literally everything you could 'wish' for in a Celtic album, and then some! The musical abilities and professionalism of Poitín are clearly heard in every song. The talent of this band truly astounds me.
"Wish" is a 15-track cd that has the perfect blend of reels & jigs, vocals & instrumentals, and traditional & new. This album kept me captivated from beginning to end every time I have listened to it, and I can guarantee it is one cd I will be listening to often.
Singers, Jeremy King and Jakub Siegl are phenomenal. They both have the perfect tone and pitch to carry across the stories they are telling in the songs they are singing...a true delight to the listener.
The songs, "Rookery", "The Handsome Cabin Boy", and "How I Wish", really stood out to me, but to pick a favorite is impossible because every song is performed above and beyond perfection!
"Wish" is definitely not a cd you simply want to put on a 'wish' list...
it is one you will want to own NOW!!!
