If you're of age and into drinking at pubs of the British expat variety, you've likely borne witness to house bands playing Celtic folk on a Sunday evening. They serve their purpose as quaint fare to accompany booze, but generally you forget about them as soon as you're out the door. So it's hard to understand why a band like St. John's Great Big Sea have ever ascended above the echelon of standard pub performers, since they sound the same as every other traditional pub band. Mysteriously, they have to such a degree that a whopping live 52-track dual CD and DVD package is warranted, highlighting the band's pop-influenced hits and taste for old-timey songs. The only problem is that they're boring, both musically and in performance. It might be okay after five pints, but not for anyone who enjoys real feeling in music.
