Return to Clinch Mountain – Brendan Hendry, Jonny Toman

A few days ago, we showed you the terrific video on the promotion of the new album, The Living Roots, just out from Northern Ireland’s Brendan Hendry and Jonny Toman. Here is a full musical vid to show you what these two are offering in this wonderful, brand new album. This cut is called, Return to Clinch Mountain. It is an old Stanley Brothers mountain tune from America. This shows the current, red hot approach virtually all Irish trad groups are embracing. It fuses Americana, bluegrass and Irish trad. Now, it is true that bluegrass and American mountain music is essentially ALL Scots and Irish, but it is really hot right now in the field to highlight the musical connections. Here is a perfect example, perfectly done. A lovely tribute to the Stanley Brothers, and a lovely tribute to the fine musicianship from Brendan and Jonny. Enjoy the real deal!
