We have recorded 12 of our favorite pieces of music, and now need funding to pay for the recording, the mixing, the mastering, the production and design of this Psycho-Celtic master-piece. We are releasing it on CD, Vinyl and digital download for your aural pleasure. There is plan to release cheap-ass fun videos for each of the 12 songs for your optical pleasure. World-famous artist Dave Gascoigne has been commissioned to do the art-work for the album.
The Craic Addicts have chosen :fund:it to give you all the opportunity to become "share-holders in a dream" ....to help us realise the immortalisation of the music we have created over the last 5 years. In return, you will receive our album, along with much love, respect and some quirky specially designed rewards. All will be posted to you anywhere in the world, or can be picked up directly from any of our up-coming concerts.
We will keep you well informed of our progress throughout and invite you all to our launch parties coming up in the next few months.
The €4000, if raised, will cover the cost of;
The recording, mixing and mastering of the album.
The production of CD.s
The production Vinyls
The Artwork and design
The Craic Addicts are made up of 5 Sligo-based musicians who have been playing together, weekly, for 5 years.
Fionnuala Kennedy - 5-string Banjo, Mandolin & Vocals
Claudia Schwab - Fiddle & Vocal
Peter Crann - Percussion & Vocals
Ray Coen - Electric Guitar & Vocals

The good thing is that we have recorded the music already, so we have only to pay the professionals we have lined-up to complete the project.
There is a quick 3 week campaign, and if successful, the album will be in your hands by the end of January 2017.
Thanks to all of our future funders for their support and belief in our project.
