Mick Fitzgerald And The Bacha Trio - Light Sleeper

This is a selection of his own songs, written over a long period. His songs have frequently been recorded by others, including June Tabor, but Mick is their best interpreter.
...
Mick Fitzgerald, who previously had been active in other bands, joined the Wild Geese in 1983, as a singer, guitar player and bodhrán player. After the Wild Geese stopped being active he concentrated on acting and writing.
But now this multi-talented artist is back with a solo-album, after a break of six years: "Damage limitation", which he worked on for almost three years.
...
Mick Fitzgerald really can afford to renounce the use of technical tricks. This way his very personal compositions become really effective. The music is unrestrained and not perfect and that makes it very effective and alive. All songs were written by himself. "Damage limitation" is a serious and very honest album made by one of the stalwarts of Irish music.
Mick Fitzgerald & The Bacha Trio: Damage limitation Mick Fitzgerald & The Bacha Trio: Damage limitation In Deutschland hatte und hat irische Musik viele Freunde. Die bekanntesten Vertreter dürften sicher die "Dubliners" sein, die "Oberkrainer Irlands", wie sie ein Freund einmal bezeichnete. Später kamen dann Bands wie Clannad, die leider ins allzu esoterische abglitten Nicht ganz so bekannt waren "Wild Geese". Doch waren sie nicht minder beteiligt am guten Ruf irischer Musik. Vor allem um 1980 wurden sie zu einem festen Begriff. Mick Fitzgerald, der zuvor in anderen Bands Erfahrung sammelte, gesellte sich 1983 zu den "Wild Geese", als Sänger, Gitarrist und Bodhránspieler. Eigentlich ist er Schauspieler und Journalist. Nachdem die "Wild Geese" ihre Aktivitäten zurückfuhren, konzentrierte er sich wieder auf die Schauspielerei und aufs Schreiben. Nun lässt dieser vielseitige Künstler wieder, nach 6 Jahren Pause, mit einem Soloalbum von sich hören: "Damage limitation". Fast drei Jahre hat er daran gearbeitet. Und wie klingt's? Irisch natürlich, doch nicht nach irischen Klischees. Es ist ein typisches Singer/Songwriter-Album mit irischem Einschlag. Er vertont hier eigene Texte, in denen er sich teils tiefgründige Gedanken macht und entsprechend ist die Stimmung des Albums gefärbt. Das ernst wirkende herbstliche Cover ist bewusst gewählt. Insgesamt ist das Album sehr unspektakulär und unaufdringlich. Die schlichte Produktion verstärkt den Eindruck, dass hier ein Musiker vor allem seine Musik und seine Texte im Mittelpunkt sehen wollte. Sehr sympathisch.
...
Mick Fitzgerald has been in and around the Irish music world for over thirty years. He must have felt a few times that his shot at fame (we won't mention fortune) was also on the never-never. But singing and song writing got into his blood and he found the Irish song-stream to be profusely inspirational. His first solo album, Light Sleeper from 2003, stitched together a set of old songs with some crafty new ones -it was a memorable, if belated, debut for a singer-songwriter. His new record, Damage Limitation, follows the same pattern and it's a more polished but equally powerful creation (available from Claddagh Records).
...
On the new album, Fitzgerald opens Conquistador with these lines, An eight-year-old Conquistador / Running barefoot down the backlane /
...
Fitzgerald set this song in the mood of 1957 but when I first heard those lines, I thought they described some of the frantic parts of Irish experience under the sway of the Celtic Tiger.
...
Fitzgerald does recreate the cultural and emotional terrain of certain periods of life with his songs. See her after twenty years in a shop somewhere /
...
Keenan, says Fitzgerald, Shone like a diamond / that never was found.
...
His best-known song, Rathdrum Fair, traveled to the U.S. with Carnahan in the late 1970s, entered the North American folk circuit, and came back to Ireland for a holiday in 2000 where Fitzgerald heard it sung by a Scottish busker.
...
Mick Fitzgerald's music tells us why it's important not to forget musical histories.

Mick Fitzgerald

...
Actor and musician Mick Fitzgerald has a long and distinguished history in the constantly evolving story of Irish music, both as a solo artist and a member of the late and much lamented Tipsy Sailor, which in essence was like a finishing school for some of the muse's greatest exponents, including-among others-the late John Keenan and Fiach O'Broin, Gerry Banjo O'Connor, and Kieran Halpin.
...
With "Cabra Tracks", Mick Fitzgerald has produced one of the finest musical documents of recent times, an album so full of passion and integrity, beautifully produced , every note, every song , worth several carats.
