Our First CD, Kitchen Party 

For Generations families & friends have gathered around the kitchen table for fun, food and drink.

This collection of music is a celebration of that long tradition

So.... fill the table with food, pour a round for the house, get your singing voices together, & join us in song!

'Searching for the Craic' is the title of our 2nd CD.

We hope the music takes you where it's taken us over these past years. Many new faces that have become great friends, and many who heard our first performance in 2003 and have joined us ever since.... Thank you, to all of you.

Your voices, laughter and smiles are what keeps West of Galway moving forward. We hope to still be enjoying all of this for many years to come.

     Craic' : [ Irish ] / pronounced: crack / The combined sensation of the conversation, the company, the music, the drink, the spirit of the surroundings;
    "the craic" is what drives all emotion and music that comes from the soul.

    The little island that has populated the world.

    This collection of music tells the stories of the hard life Irish men and women have had to endure, and is a tribute to thier fight for survival in the new world. It tells how through immigration we've come to be here in America. These songs are the basis of how West Of galway came to be. How our families immigrated and worked hard to establish a new life in the new world. How the traditions of Ireland have carried on through generations. We're very proud of this collection of songs and hope you enjoy listening to them as much as we have enjoyed putting them together.
