The Greencards at Station Inn 

Green Piece

Green Piece
Translating an album that draws on all the resources of a recording studio into a compelling live set can be a daunting challenge, but when it comes to their latest, Fascination (Sugar Hill Records), it’s one that The Greencards have more than convincingly overcome. That’s best chalked up to focus and experience, for while the trio (augmented by Jake Stargell, who’s settled into the guitar chair) makes engaging CDs, they’ve got years of seemingly endless touring under their belts, and their fierce energy, tight arrangements and evident delight at jamming out rock intimate club audiences as easily as festival crowds. But their hometown appearances are relatively few, and this one—their last of 2009—is especially freighted, as Kym Warner (mostly mandolin) and Carol Young (bass, vocals) are set to bid farewell to dazzling fiddle partner Eamon McLoughlin at year’s end. That turns a show that would be “don’t miss” by any standards into something special.
