San Patricio - The Chieftains with Ry Cooder

this is a transatlantic musical campaign whose virtuosity, verve and sheer eccentric heart make it hard to resist.
This is how those Irish champs the Chieftains see their music folding into the tropes of Mexico, rough-riding on the story of the Irish "San Patricio Battalion", who fought in the US/Mex war of 1846.
