Heads up on faboulus CD!

This weekend I was so lucky to experience KGB live in Oslo.
Paddy Keenan, Frankie Gavin and Dermot Byrne was amazing! They had invited John McCartin to join them as backer and he was a new name to me.
I was blown away by the delicate and exciting guitar backing and just today discovered the CD; "Carlos-Sweeney-McCartin" and I have been listening nonstop all day! What a wonderful recording of great tunes! And really innovative backing and arrangements! Have a listen!

That is definitely one of my favorite albums of the last few years! I bought 10 copies of it to give to my session mates for Christmas a couple years ago, and we’ve ended up pulling a few choice tunes from it that we hadn’t heard before. For a bit of context, here is where John McCartin originally posted about it, and there are a few discussions about it, including one that John posted a month or so ago…

This album is regular rotation for me. The banjo player on a couple tracks, George McAdam, is fabulous. Check him out on YouTube; his feel is mesmerizing.

Thanks for the recommendation. I am just enjoying listening to it on Bandcamp.
