We Drank Our Tears was Barry’s first solo record after leaving the acclaimed Jubilee Allstars. Hot Press said, ‘The finest acoustic album of 2003 is Barry McCormack’s We Drank Our Tears, an album that owes less to this songwriting nation’s all too well-thumbed canon of Dylan/Drake/Buckley and more to the Irish storytelling tradition: timeless and placeless, but at the same time very specifically observed and honestly rendered universal, local, music.’


’A melting pot of Brendan Behan, Bob Dylan and Shane MacGowan... McCormack has created an album of contemporary folk songs rooted in a tradition that goes back generations.’
