Yoke Shire show their diversity on "Awakening Celtic Spirits", their first entirely acoustic CD, embracing a completely new genre as they perform traditional Irish and Celtic folk songs. The Herlihy brothers explore their paternal heritage while taking listeners on a musical journey back to the Emerald Isle. The album is dedicated to their late father, Joseph P. Herlihy, Sr., through whom they trace their Irish ancestry. He always enjoyed hearing his sons perform the songs of the old country.
"These Irish-American brothers can certainly play, enlivening such well-known tunes as 'Irish Rover,' 'Danny Boy' and 'Finnegan's Wake' with a whirlwind of tin whistle, bodhran and dulcimer." - The Boston Herald
