Quite a surprise the album this track was taken from.  It's called The Language Within and features this very talented Derry family and some of their close musical friends. We will be getting to a review shortly.



3. McDonald & Kearns - Garfields

Their Facebook pages states that "The dynamic Lurgan duo of Fionntán McDonald and Eoin Kearns play an eclectic blend of Irish, American and contemporary instrumental music." They have just made a short 4 Track EP to mark their arrival on the scene and its pretty impressive. Fiddle with guitar, guitar with banjo, a tinge of old time in there.
