This CD will offer some very different song material, with more modern Irish compositions and includes the title cut, "California Stars", lyrics written by Woodie Guthrie and music by the band Wilco, which featured Billy Bragg at the time.
The same stars travel over our world, and this CD shows the influence of American music on Irish composers and musicians, as well as a wonderful cameo appearance by Corks's own Donncha Lynch Band performing traditional Irish instrumental barn dances on fiddle, Irish accordion and spoons, and joining Brian on Christy Moore's salute to the Dingle Peninsula, "St. Brendan's Voyage".
