★★★★ “This is a party looking for a crowd” Irish Times

★★★★ Liverpool Sound & Vision

“Alan Kelly has done it again, along with his choice musical gang… the appeal of this new release seems endless… It’s most definitely a winner.” Irish Music Magazine

“The Alan Kelly Gang manage to sound like a ceilidh band, a jazz combo, a first class session, and even a Fest Noz in full flight for the wonderful Hopvotte. To pigeonhole this as Irish traditional music is woefully inadequate, but that core is unmistakable, as is the band’s own distinctive and irrepressible sound” The Living Tradition

“one of the best Irish bands playing today” New York Irish Arts

“refined and exciting in all the right places” fRoots

Stalwarts of contemporary trad, the Alan Kelly Gang are a creative force all about tasteful arrangements, groove, energy and musicality of the highest order. Their superb new album, The Last Bell, which has been over a year in the making, is an uplifting, pristine collection of original and traditional music that inspires a feeling of joie de vivre throughout. 12 tracks – 8 instrumentals and 4 songs.
