Three comments

Another great release

Ten of Ireland’s best musicians. Two of my favorite fluters - Anthny Quigney and Garry Shannon - and one of Ireland’s finest concertinists: Tim Collins. It’s a thick sound, but it’s perfect for what it is.

Along with The Chieftains and The Bothy Band, the KCB is one of the greatest and most influential pure drop groups.
