More about Ken O'Malley and Celtic Pink Floyd:
Introduction by Celtic Pink Floyd:
We are very excited to announce that Ken O’Malley has officially joined the band! With his deep rich voice (and in the tradition of the great Irish storytellers) his ability to captivate audiences with his tales of a faraway land, Ken is a force to be reckoned with live. If you’ve never seen him perform before then you’re in for a real treat.
We would love to bring you our new line-up live, but unfortunately current events prohibit us from doing so at this time. So in the meantime, we’ve decided to do the next best thing and give you a taste of what to expect with a new song and video. We hope this will tide you over until we have completed work on our next album.
Also appearing as a very special guest on the track is Eric Rigler of Bad Haggis, You’ve of course heard him perform on such films and television shows as Braveheart, Titanic and Outlander. Described as "the most recorded bagpiper of all time”, Eric’s addition of pipes and whistles has definitely taken this track to an elevated level.
Marking our first non Pink Floyd tune recorded, “Mad World” is quite appropriate for these times. We sincerely hope that you all stay healthy and safe and we look forward to the time when we can all get together and share the gift of music again. CPF are Damon Stout & Brian Stout, Forrest Robinson, Ken O'Malley
