You should post this in the "Recordings" section. I’d be very interested to see the track list. Sounds great - hope it sells well. Best of luck. Kenny.

Enjoyed those, trust it goes well. Serious looking faces though! There was a good thread here some time back about the expressions on peoples faces when they are playing tunes. Was going say ‘smile, you’re on camera’ but then that can be overdone a la Sharon Shannon who seems to constantly grin like a Cheshire cat. I’m sure she won’t take offence to that as she likes animals but………

Re: Carlos Sweeney McCartin

Googled that name Kenny, looks like there’s mention of it on their Facebook. Very recent release by the sounds, so maybe not on iTunes yet? In any event, I’m sure he’ll let us know.
