Rochford or Crehan Recordings?

Hello there,
Does anyone have any Martin Rochford or Junior Crehan recordings I can trade for? I have some pretty nice session recordings and old 78 rpm stuff to swap with.
Thanks!

Re: Rochford or Crehan Recordings?

My understanding is that Junior Crehan never made any recordings, but his son and grandson worked with him in the last years of his life to create a recording by the grandson, Kevin Crehan, that is supposed to document Junior’s style and repertoire as nearly as possible without being played by Junior himself. Here’s the entry for this album from this site:

Re: Rochford or Crehan Recordings?

There is a new Junior Crehan recording - The last house in Ballymakea. Has anyone heard it? I can’t wait.

BTW, The Kevin Crehan record is pretty hard to obtain, unless you’re at Willie week. I got my copy mail order from crehan’s in dublin:
