Went to see a friend play some Irish music this weekend. Did a pretty good Irish Rover and an impromptu Fairy Tale of New York which just fair cuz the didn't rehearse it. I yelled it out for their encore.
But to answer the question above of the Irish musician
whose next album is with The Roots
The answer is Declan Patrick McManus.
Questlove says he's more than pleased with the nearly finished album, the title of which McManus wants to keep under wraps for now. "In the whole history of the Roots, I have never bragged on an album first, but I actually love this record," Questlove said.
