They Say All Music Guide

Téada’s second album proves that the artistic success of the band’s first was no fluke. There they established themselves as one of the up-and-coming young Irish bands. With Give Us a Penny and Let Us Be Gone (a title that comes from the tradition of Wren Day on December 26) they boost themselves up into the premier league of artists, young or otherwise. There’s a vibrancy and imagination in the way the instrumental sets are arranged (for example, the fiddle and bodhran duet on “Peter Horan’s”), while the songs exhibit a lovely poignancy. Most of the material is relatively obscure, which helps them put their stamp more firmly on it, although “The Trip We Took Over the Mountain,” probably most famous in its Seamus Ennis version, shines in their hands. Oisin Mac Diarmada is a magical fiddler, but Paul Finn shows himself to be a fine accordion and concertina player. Having the option of John Blake on either flute or guitar, alongside Sean McElwain covering banjo and bouzouki, certainly adds to their options, and they take full advantage of it. It seems merely a matter of time before Téada is hailed in the big leagues of Irish music – Chris Nickson
