More on the artist.

David Kincaid’s album,  The Irish Volunteer (from his website:) received such critical accolades as “one of the most emotionally credible Civil War recordings ever made, as well as a superb, irresistibly melodic Irish folk recording” (Scott Alarik-The Boston Globe), and “Stirring stuff.”*(Dick Hogan-The Irish Times). Even Irish folk-music legend Tommy Makem was quoted as saying “I have come across a young man named David Kincaid. He has such a wonderful CD out, of tremendously good songs, and he does them so well.”On the heels of these reviews, this new offering, entitled “The Irish-American’s Song,” is sure to enchant once again the fans of this music and history. It differs from the first in that in consists of songs from both the Union and the Confederacy; all of them from the perspective of the Irish –oftentimes pitted against each other– in the great tragedy of the American Civil War.
