Thanks Paul, I'm glad you enjoyed it.  Since I wasn't listening to Irish Traditional Music at the time of Michael's death (RIP), I hadn't known about Michael, The Bothy Band or any of the amazing music that he had made... but I quickly learned about his legacy to ITM almost as soon as I started studying the genre. I hope everyone will get a chance to watch and share this lovely video. Happy New Year!!!
