Merchants of Bordeaux: DIY diplomats shake hands with ‘Wine Geese’ ghosts
Wine-Searcher (New Zealand)
A Song of Celebration for the Wine Geese
The rocking "Oh Hangman" and the beautiful folk ballad "The Merchants Of Bordeaux" are our personal favorite tracks on this great album.
Dowd's new album, Songs from the Fever Ship, is a collaboration with Horslips drummer/lyricist, Eamon Carr - together they've penned eight new songs with the central theme of the diaspora, and the plight of the
dispossessed Irish who moved to France in the 17th and 18th century.

Songs From The Fever Ship is a magical collaboration between two incredible artists

Dowd's voice is in full flow, with The Racketeers providing an accordion-inflected folk backing.

A wonderful version of Cu Chullain’s Lament from The Tain and the crisp drumming on Cry On My Grave, which recall vintage Horslips crossed with Dowd’s gothic roots rocking....Highly narrative.... The total work is a rich collection of songs,each aching with life and emotion.
