CD Compass records 2009 \r\n \r\n\r\n

Formed in 1978 by musician and musicologist Mick Moloney, THE GREEN FIELDS OF AMERICA were the first group on either side of the Atlantic to bring together Irish vocal, instrumental, and dance traditions on the concert and festival stage. Sponsored by the National Endowment for the Arts a record five times, the group has performed in a variety of leading venues including Carnegie Hall, Wolf Trap, The Smithsonian Institution, The Festival of American Folklife, Milwaukee Irish Fest, and The National Folk Festival, and was also featured on the soundtrack of PBS� �Out of Ireland� as well as on the American Public Television production �Absolutely Irish.� \r\n\r\n

The current line-up of Moloney, John Doyle (Solas, Eileen Ivers, Tim O'Brien), Athena Tergis (Riverdance on Broadway), Robbie O'Connell (Aengus , The Clancy Legacy), and All Ireland Champion Billy McComiskey promises to maintain the 'supergroup� status that the Green Fields of America are known for.\r\n\r\n
