New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) April 19, 2009
New Orleans-based musician Marc Gunn's most recent release, "Marc Gunn and the Dubliners Tabby Cats: Live at the Cactus Café" will be featured on the front page of CD Baby on Sunday, April 19.
CD Baby is a leading distributor of independent music around the world.
"I am thrilled," said Marc Gunn. "This was a great project and features two other great musicians, James Hazlerig on fiddle and Michelle Heddon on drum. It's an unusual album, one that I know people will enjoy, and this exposure is outstanding."
Here's what CD Baby's editors had to say:
Mixing Celtic drinking songs with lyrics about cats seems like a no-brainer-wait a second, no it doesn't. In fact, it sounds a little nuts. But the way in which this group has done it makes it not only loads of fun for feline fanatics, but also a hootin' and hollerin' time for fans of traditional Celt folk rock. Sure, there are elements that are highly comedic, but the popularity of this series makes one thing clear: these guys aren't some goofy novelty act. Their musical chops are evident in the arrangement of each track, and the lyrics are sharp-witted and cutely weird, sure to keep you paying close attention to each stanza. This is a live recording of some of their best numbers, and hearing them pull off the fast-paced intricacies of some of the songs (especially the ones with meowing) is great fun. If you're in the mood for something light-hearted but also sing-along catchy, you've gotta check this out. You may never think about cats in the same way again.
The album was recorded at the Cactus Cafe in Austin, Texas in the summer of 2009 for the release of "Whiskers in the Jar: Irish Songs for Cat Lovers".
