Ian Gallagher it is not your typical Irish singer. He is in fact a
sort of crooner, with a clear jazz sensibility. A very fine
voice deeply imbued with his Irish roots. Ian has been
performing traditional Irish songs and American pop tunes for the
past thirty-five years. His lilting, melodious voice lends
itself beautifully not only to the traditional Celtic tunes, but
also to the swing of Jazz standard's.
His Latest CD (My Ireland) has a strong sense of lounge jazz,
bop, and even swing, evident in all of the American song remakes.
Old standards" such as "How Are Things in Glocca Morra" and, "Danny
Boy," and "The Star of the County Down", the soaring violin and
guitar on "The Dear Irish Boy" will make you feel like you are
standing on a green cliff in Ireland overlooking the sea. Kudos to
all the instrumentalists who play so wonderfully on this CD produced
by Ian Gallagher himself.
