Political folk with an Irish-Canadian sound

ookpik

An outstanding album of Irish-influenced modern political folk. Serious social justice concerns mixed with catchy tunes and excellent musicianship make this one of my favorite CDs; I've had it for over ten years and never get tired of listening to it. If you like a trad-Irish sound with very modern lyrics, this is highly recommended.

A true classic with meaning

Trilam

Here is an early album from one of Canada's best bands. Each song tells a story and has a strong meaning. This is perhaps my favorite of their many albums.

They Say All Music Guide

For anyone who has checked out later discs by Spirit of the West, this early disc will come as a bit of a surprise. Labour Day shows much more of a bluegrass/Irish slant to the music, and while the songs are all originals, they are based upon jigs and reels rather than rock & roll. Highlights include “Run Boy,” “Drinking Man,” and the eerie “Take It from the Source.” For those into the roots and branches of some of Canada’s finer folk, check out Labor Day — it’s an eye-opener. – James Chrispell
