Here is a holiday gift idea for the Irish music lovers in your life. Grada’s last CD, Cloudy Day Navigation, has been in regular rotation on my commute since I bought it at a live show a few years ago. Their musicianship is something to behold but their ability to create atmosphere and a sense of place with every piece they play is what keeps me coming back for more. You can hear a few cuts here. Their website has a little more about them and a new CD, Natural Angle, is on the way. Here’s hoping they come back to Southern New England in 2010.
