Martin Praetorius feat. Blackie O'Connell
Down To The Sea

'Down To The Sea' is the new single from Martin Praetorius' forthcoming album 'It's OK, I'm still laughing!'

It features Blackie O'Connell, who is one of the most exciting Uilleann Pipers in Irish Traditional Music.

The idea for this cross-genre collaboration evolved over the past couple of months, with Martin hanging out in Doolin, Co. Clare, for most of his time and becoming a follower and fan of Blackie's band 'Dubhlinn' with Cyril O'Donoghue and Eoghan Neff, who play in the pubs of this hot-spot of traditional music 4 nights a week during the summer season
