Down the Old Plank Road: The Nashville Sessions album for sale The Chieftains are in flying form on this latest album where the cream of the twin traditions of Irish Traditional and American Country Music come together for a Seisiun. The album opens with a swirl of the harp strings as the band launch into the title track with vocals from John Hiatt who describes the Chieftains as “the original rock gods”. The guest artists come from both the new and the old traditions. They include Martina Mc Bride, Buddy Miller, Ricky Skaggs, Bela Fleck (known here as Mr Maura O’Connell) Jeff White, Vince Gill and many others. On this fourteen track disc there a few stand out songs including: “Molly Bawn” with Alison Krauss. “Cindy” with Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder. “Don’t let your deal go down” by Lyle Lovett. Perhaps the best of all is a song that has been slaughtered in many a singing pub by a “musician” engaged in mortal combat with a drum machine. This is by Vince Gill one of the biggest stars in Nashville, he sings “ Dark as a Dungeon”. “Down the old Plank Road” is the Chieftains 40th album and a fitting tribute to Derek Bell their harpist who died last month. He gave them their unique sound and added much of the humor to their style of playing. I am an a la carte Chieftains fan. I never considered them “rock gods” but I really enjoyed my fifty four minutes “Down the Old Plank Road”.
