David Kincaid, a Civil War re-enactor and a fine singer, has pulled together 12 songs written about and popular among the 160,000 Irish-born soldiers who fought to preserve the Union. These songs are good, rousing martial songs, accompanied by Liz Knowles, Jerry O'Sullivan, and John Whelan. Kincaid himself sings a little like Ron Kavana. The songs shed light on the ethnic pride the Irish felt as they fought against the South. The only familiar song on here is "Paddy's Lamentation," which gets great treatment. Add to this liner notes that contain complete lyrics and are themselves hefty enough to be used in hand-to-hand combat, and the result is a fine piece of work.
