"Songs of The Erie Canal"

Album Cover

Construction on what was to be the Erie Canal began July 4, 1817 by American farmers. Soon, it was evident that the job could not be finished with farmers or field hands, who needed to tend their crops and livestock. Within a year, Irish immigrants arrived to take on the backbreaking task for 80 cents a day and a "found," which included room and board plus a daily ration of whiskey. Before long, the Irish became the majority element in the project.This CD commemorates the 175-year anniversary of the Erie Canal and the songs that have become a time addition to the American music landscape.

Album Cover

Dady Brothers' unique style and instrumental versatility 
captures the essence of the traditional Irish tunes that 
were adapted by the canallers. On "Paddy's Song," 
Marty O'Keefe accompanies himself in a concertina. Born 
in County Clare in 1912, Marty has been named to the international 
Comhaltas (Irish Music) Hall of Fame.
