We had two aims for our last album. 1. Create an album of all-Ulster music 2. Make an even more terrible cover than Wrappad Up. We succeeded. The cow later took us to court for royalties. Re:Session – on Spotify, amazon & Apple Music NOW. #haveagreatweekend

With all the excitement of Paddy’s day, we forgot to mention we had Eamon Murray in the studio last week laying down tambourine on our new record. Eamon played the tambourine on all our albums and we can honestly say we wouldn’t want anyone else in charge of these jingly little boyos.

Thanks a million to everyone who braved the outrageously un-Spring like conditions last night to come to our sold out show in The Empire. As we mentioned last night, The Rapparees’ march into the 21st Century continues with the launch of 2008’s Clarity on digital platforms, including Spotify… 70cl on repeat should help the hangovers lads….
