The year is 2019 AD. For almost 30 years, Fiddler’s Green have been playing rocked-up Irish Folk music.
Where in the beginnings they were at times met with belittling smiles, the sextet nowadays can rightfully claim to be one of the country’s most successful bands. The band’s new album HEYDAY underlines this work ethic vociferously. The musicians captured 15 songs that indeed sound typically Fiddler’s Green on the one hand but also pack an unfamiliar yet very agreeable punch on the other. Tracks such as Farewell or the album’s first single No Anthem clearly carry the band’s typical Irish elements though in an acoustically freshened framing. No Anthem comes along as a modern-day protest song, not unlike the works of a Frank Turner or Joe Strummer in posture and energy. “The so-called rebel song is an integral component of Irish culture,” Stefan nods, “and if you want to combine Irish-influenced music with a message, writing a contemporary rebel song comes natural." In contrast, songs like Limerick Style stand for a certain lightness in music and content. With One Fine Day the musicians even get pleasantly close to their punk roots. Also an integral part of every DNA of an Irish-influenced band: the traditional. This time the band surprises with an idiosyncratic version of the shanty John Kanaka. Fiddler's Green still manage to surprise themselves and the fans. Their new album HEYDAY could finally make the band hit it big time – without having to compromise in any way...
