Problems abound and death lurks behind every corner at Sunny Glen Palms, when its quirky residents turn “an otherwise stable no-nonsense age discretionary retirement community” on its head.
Welcome to Air Donovan… fasten your seatbelts.
“A rollercoaster ride…haunting and visceral, a powerful new voice in Irish folk.”
-Irish Music Magazine
“Lucky Sevens is a very good album. Donovan plays a swirl of strings that enchant and delight. His songwriting is literate, observational and very entertaining. He has created a unique sound on Lucky Sevens that he calls AmeriCelt. I call it pretty darn good.” -The Muse’s Muse
“Donovan has a poetic flare for story telling and artistic descriptions of life…a great album for all those who delve into Irish folk and maybe some that don’t. Ricko Donovan has proven himself as an Americeltic artist to remember.” -Swift Reviews
“A skillfull master of a unique and beautiful instrument.”-Cormac MacConnell, Clare FM Radio Ireland
“He renders Irish ballads with the greatest sensitivity and the rest with the reckless abandon of a steamrolling train with no brakes…” – The Clare Champion
