Traditional Irish Session with Banshanachie & Friends.
The name “Banshanachie” means “the woman storyteller”, and in this case the Banshanachie [pronounced with the emphasis on “shan”] is Sarah Underhill, a Hudson Valley singer and song collector who learned to sing on her Mother’s knee and has been amassing a folk repertoire ever since. Her unaccompanied ballad singing has captivated many an audience, but just as often she is surrounded by an abundant backup band, trading songs and sets of traditional Celtic tunes with a talented group of friends on fiddle, guitar, flute, accordion, mandolin, bazouki and tenor banjo.
