Album Update.

So,  at long last I have finally finished putting down all the melody and accompaniment on the forthcoming album.

I was listening to Altan and Fidil yesterday, from the concert which ended the Frankie Kennedy Winter School: but that's not the sort of Northern fiddle music I want to tell you about here. The music I was listening to today comes from much further north than Donegal,…

Booking now for St Patty's Day gigs. Call or text 4132487668 if looking for traditional Feis or Ceilidh music for an Irish celebration
