Looks like this just came out. Good to see Derrane is making up for lost time. I’m not entirely sure I’d want to play the box like he does, but trying to get his precision on any instrument would be a hell of a goal to set yourself. I sometimes think he must record his tracks in two passes - half of the notes on the first go, then the other half on the second.

The two Gan Ainm jigs on track 12 are the Boys of Ballinamore and the Firefly.
