Light And Shade

1992 outing on Claddagh Records (CC57CD). Skylark are, in my humble opinion at least, an outstanding and under-rated band. The line-up on this occasion was Len Graham (vocals, bodhran, cutlery), Gerry O’Connor (fiddle), Mairtin O’Connor (accordion) and Garry O’Briain (guitar, mandocello, keyboards). Graham’s version of The Boys Of Mullaghbawn is just superb!

The second tune on track 14 is a reel, sourced from Cathal McConnell. It doesn’t appear to be in the tune database.
