Description
Ireland's revered Chieftains and California's roots music genius Ry Cooder have gathered an awesome assemblage of soloists and musical groups to bring to light the story of Irish immigrant soldiers who spurned the Yankee cause to fight for Mexico in the Mexican-American War of the 1840s. The finale is an exhilarating medley/mélange that encapsulates the exhilaration of the entire project. This Deluxe Edition includes a bonus DVD with a special making-of documentary and three videos of performances by Chavela Vargas, Los Tigres Del Norte, and Lila Downs.

"The vibrant San Patricio … surprises simply because it's so much fun…. Cooder and head Chieftain Paddy Moloney pump out irresistible party grooves that are a striking contrast to the defeat and death encountered by their real-life subjects."—Mother Jones

"The combination of the Chieftains with their collaborators is brilliant, exciting and thrilling. Lila Downs is heard on two Mexican folksongs—'La Iguana' and 'El Relampago'—while Linda Ronstadt's singing on 'A La Orilla De Un Palmar' is beautiful. Another thrilling song is 'Ojitos Negros,' featuring the voices of Los Cenzontles singing almost a cappella but for Paddy Moloney's pipe drones."—Sing Out!
