Le Ch�ile was formed from musicians who played regularly in The White Hart, Fulham Broadway in the early 1970's. The 1960s and �70s were golden years for traditional Irish music in London when musicians played before packed audiences and sparked the revival which went on to spread back home and around the globe. Le Ch�ile were the cult trad Irish group of 1970s London, producing some of the most memorable recordings of the time. The 1970s album Lord Mayo, was reissued on CD in 2006. To coincide with that release the surviving original band members � master fiddler Danny Meehan, Liam Farrell (banjo), John Roe (piano) and Kevin Boyle (guitar) � reformed alongside new recruits, flautist Paul Gallagher and Andy Martyn (box). \r\n\r\n

So now they�re back, adding powerful momentum to the revivalist movement within Irish music today with their exciting new big band mix of back to basics traditional Irish music from Donegal and Galway. \r\n

In March 2008 the boys began recording their long awaited third album which has now arrived.\r\n\r\n

This is the first new 'Le Cheile' album since 1977. A CD re-release in 2007 by Limerick University of a compilation of albums made in 1974 and 1977 reignited the band and with new members, Andy Martyn and Paul Gallagher, they returned to the studio in 2008 to put together recently developed selections of music. Though once entirely instrumental, they now incorporate songs into their repertoire.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n
