CD Review – The Telegraph

Barrule: Barrule (Wardfell Records)

ANOTHER young band with an exciting sound is the trio from the Isle of Man called Barrule. Named after a legendary Manx mountain, the band comprises 19-year-old fiddle-player Tomas Callister, accordion player Jamie Smith (of Mabon) and Adam Rhodes on bouzouki. It’s an interesting acoustic blend and songs such as The Girls of Balladoole and Allen Barbara have a real zest and quality.
