Bap Kennedy :: Let’s Do It Again


BAP-KENNEDY-coverIn de betrekkelijke luwte is de Ierse singer/songwriter Bap Kennedy bezig een imposant oeuvre op te bouwen. Hoe goed hij is, blijkt uit de mensen die graag met hem samenwerken: Steve Earle produceerde een van zij CD’s (Domestic Blues), Mark Knopfler ook (The Sailor’s Revenge) en Van Morrison schreef een nummer met hem (Milky Way). Let’s Start Again is zijn zesde CD en is weer prachtig. Steve Earle kwam dicht bij de waarheid toen hij zei: ‘Bap Kennedy is de beste songwriter die ik ken.

Let’s Start Again, the new album by Bap Kennedy, is his 6th solo album of original material. His initial encounter with the record business was as lead singer and primary songwriter for cult Belfast rockers Energy Orchard, with whom he recorded 5 albums.
While Bap usually records in England and America, this time he wanted to bring together some of the top musicians in his native Northern Ireland to play on Let’s Start Again. The most local of the local talents is bass player and harmony vocalist, Brenda Kennedy, Bap’s wife. Brenda is also a regular member of Bap’s live band, as are two of the album’s other musicians – drummer Rabb Bennett and virtuoso guitarist Gordy McAllister.
