Joining in the fun of the Irish

The popularity of Irish music in this country has clearly had its heyday. Back in the day – around a decade or so ago – the likes of homegrown Celtic outfit Black Velvet and a glittering procession of acts from the Emerald Isle, such as Dervish and Lunasa, mixed it up on stages all over the country, principally at the annual 4 Days in Ireland Festival at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque.

The Evergreen quartet was also very much part of that scene and, like Black Velvet, has kept the Celtic flame burning as brightly as possible here over the years. The band is a regular at the Jacob’s Ladder Festival and has just put out its third album in around 16 years of earnest artistic endeavor.
