David Kincaid is the king of Irish-American music, at least in dealing with Civil War-era songs. His work here is absolutely magnificent, though credit is due to the instrument players and others who made this CD possible.

"The Irish-American's Song" has 6 Confederate and 6 Union military songs, all by and popular with Irish-Americans who fought in the Civil War. "Kelly's Irish Brigade", "Private Maguire", and "The Irish Sixty-Ninth" are all particular favorites of mine. But the top of them all simply must be "The President's Ball", a 4 or 5-minute song about a Union Irishman's invitation to a presidential ball in Washington City, where he sees Lincoln, his wife, and many important military and political figures of the Union. As the song goes on, he witnesses a highly-decorated but uninvited soldier's failed attempt to get into the ball, and the British ambassador's crafty theft of one Mrs. Cunningham's shawl as he is just about to leave. Then there is a fight between a Senator- couldn't catch the name- who drinks to Jefferson Davis, and Stanton, who does or says something else that causes the two to fight. The police rush in as "the ladies did squall", and much to my and the singer's amusement, the Great Emancipator is removed from the scene on a stretcher, very drunk.

An excellent set of Union and Confederate Irish songs, some of them funny, others dramatic, but all in some way courageous and full of the fighting spirit which the Irish have become famous for. To anyone interested in hearing the Civil War songs of one of America's most important immigrant groups, I highly recommend this CD.

Looking for one specifiic title, glad I purchased the whole. Kincaid is clear of voice, emphatic in presentation. You will get a sense of the anger, joy, patriotism for a new country and experience a great artist with time tested material. At 150 years these songs tell a tale of the Irish Experience in the Civil War on both sides.Well worth it

The songs are catchy, emotionally-stirring, and exceptionally well-sung. I like that he has songs from each side of the Civil War. Would be worth five stars except for one or two instances of the d-word, which I found unnecessary and distasteful.

If you are a fan of military history and quality Irish music, this is a true gem. It is astounding how well this is put together.

It helps to "speak Irish", but that does not detract from the lovely and poignant songs on this album. The fact that "the pipes" were included on at least one tune and the traditional muted rhythm of the drum on most was a bonus to the experience. The tragedy within a tragedy of this war was that Irish battalions and brigades were formed in both armies and all too frequently faced off against each other on the battlefield. The song Two Brothers Mastersons is reminiscent of Hangman and the Papist by the group Strawbs.

This Italian lady loves the Irish Civil War Music. David Kincaid has a gorgeous voice! Read the versus included. Each song tells a great deal about Irish history and their feelings during the American Civil War, not matter which side they were on.
