Lullaby For The Dead
Multi-Grammy winners The Chieftans and Ry Cooder team up with guests like Lila Downs and Linda Rondstadt. Combining the music of Ireland and Mexico in a tribute to the little-known San Patricio Battalion, a group of Irish immigrants who deserted from the US Army to fight for Mexico in the Mexican-American War. This is outstanding. Play it all!|
