Treachery Lust & Misfortune-American Celtic
The Three Jacks is the new name of Miami's own Celtic rockers, The Volunteers - one of America's most entertaining Celtic rock bands with well over fifteen years of packed-out shows at clubs, pubs and auditoriums in the US and abroad. In 'Treachery, Lust & Misfortune - American Celtic' The Three Jacks take the Celtic musical inheritance of the Americas into a new century. To a base mix of much-loved Celtic traditional tunes, they fold in their mistreatments of the Celtic classics - most notably numbers by the blind, 17th Century, Irish, folk/baroque harper and boozer, Turlough O'Carolan - (his 'Lord Inchiquin" now has a set of bawdy lyrics and has been re-christened "Ramrods & Bearskins") - whip in brand new (soon to be) Celtic classics from their 'catalog of 18th century folk-songs we wrote last week' - like 'The ballad of the Bare-Ass Girl' - and then leaven the whole heady brew with rip-out, stomping, fiddle break-downs . . . Welcome to The Three Jacks!
