Colcannon, Sunday, February 4, at the Left Hand Grange Hall in Niwot, makes Celtic folk music of an especially passionate and moving stripe, and this quality has been captured beautifully on the act's latest recording, The Life of Riley's Brother. Produced by Tim O'Brien, the disc finds the group (Mick Bolger, Mike Fitzmaurice, Rod Garnett, Jean Harrison and new member Brian Mullins on guitar, mandolin, mandocello, bouzouki and flute) blending traditional, original and contemporary songs such as Richard Thompson's "How Will I Ever Be Simple Again" with confidence and aplomb. What's more, this Colcannon fodder sounds just as good live as it does on disc. Talk about the luck of the Irish.
