Brilliant album, a lot of excellent versions, especially on the tenor guitar.

After the more “fiddle oriented” cds, that’s very nice to have a new banjo album from HIM 🙂

Does anyone else think he throws in too many variations? I mean, he barely plays the same way twice in any round of the tunes. I find it hard to listen to because of this. He’s clearly a brilliant musician, especially as a fiddler, but his banjo playing is a bit OTT for me.

John not James….

Somehow, 3 of John Carty’s recordings are listed here as by James Carty, who to my knowledge, has only made 1 CD. Corrections required, please.

Whistler at the Wake - not Haunted House

The second jig in Brian Rooney’s set is Whistler at the Wake (also by Vincent Broderick). Excellent CD!

excellent cd,like a breath of fresh air,lifts your spirits to listen to this musician play
