"An album of wonderful music... a fantastic achievement!" —Cillian Vallely, Lúnasa2010's defining performance for Celtic Music Society (soon to be renamed Róisín Dubh) was a St. Patrick's Day performance at the 171 Cedar Arts Centre in Corning, NY. Recording live in eight channels and then professionally mixed and then mastered at Grammy-winning MasterDisk in NYC. This is the recording that was played on NPR's Thistle and Shamrock as well as many other venues.
Featuring some of Rochester's best Irish musicians on nearly every track.
Rochester, New York is a great place to learn Irish music. Everyone is welcoming, and the noobs are greeted with kindness and helpfulness. It was in this spirit of community that the young performers of Celtic Music Society invited some great friends and great musicians—ages 9 to 95—to join them on this album. The Devils of Dublin is a full hour of music on 12 tracks, featuring guest musicians Cathy McGrath, Jayne Pomplas, Brian Regan, Ted McGraw, Marty O’Keefe, Mitzie Collins, Stephen Michael Condon, John Fetter, and Lynn Pilaroscia.
"A very enjoyable CD!" —Irish Party House Radio, WRUR.
Color Blind was recorded and mastered in the fall of 2003 at Rochester's Dynamic Studios, and was released soon after. 13 tracks, and a full hour of music. More than a decade later, we’re still proud of it.
This group's first year was remarkable and filled with many successes. At the end of the school year, we gathered on the school stage and recorded an album's worth of music. Only 100 copies of the CD were ever made. It is here as a historical record, and is available as a free download.
