ONE FOR THE ROAD

After four long years, Tullamore has delivered on their assurances to produce another CD. Impelled by the (just in) timely persuasion of superfan and friend, Lloyd Camp, this latest offering is a collection of many of the favorites requested at O'Malley's Pub - the pub the band has called home for years.

An early-August live-recording session saw several-dozen fans from Kansas City, Weston, Leavenworth, and Atchison crowding into the pub, and sharing in the fun that ensued.

Like their first CD Timber and Stream, the recording is one good mix after another - Irish to Scottish, vocal to instrumental, and contemporary to traditional - with Mark, Mary, and Rachel each leading a small handful of pieces, and Tara's fiddle shining throughout. Listeners will hear a great variety of pieces, including love songs (A Red, Red Rose and I'll Lay Ye Down Love), Jacobite rebellion songs (Gathering at Atholl and Bonnie House of Airlie), some modern greats (Mary Ellen Carter and From Clare to Here), and our most popularly-requested piece to-date, Danny Boy.

The recording has garnered very positive responses, both from critics and fans. Pete Maher (Midwest Irish Focus) writes, "...it is the harmonies that will stay with you long after you have played the live album once or twice. Because, while the instrumentation is incredibly rich for a live album, the blending of voices throughout the selection of Celtic and Scottish tunes will absolutely captivate your ear as song follows song."
