Artists discuss the 13 records that shaped their lives

11. The DublinersA Drop Of The Hard Stuff

Being half Irish myself – my mother was from Cork- I loved Irish music. And it wasn’t just the Dubliners. There’s so much fantastic Irish music and so many fantastic Irish musicians. The Chieftains were very traditional and then you had Planxty, of course, and The Bothy Band. The Bothy Band were just superb! So yes, I’ve chosen a Dubliners album for this list but, really, there were so many albums of traditional Irish music I could have chosen. And, again, there are some strong influences of that in the original Ommadawn I think.
