This is Michael Rooney and June McCormack’s latest release. The playing is fantastic, of course, and the tunes are gorgeous. One of my favourite CDs.

I have this. Lovely playing from both of them. I’d reccomend it.

Track 12

I believe that the first tune on track twelve is The Road to Monalea, already included as

Tasty playing on this CD. It’s been featured in “Heavy Rotation” on the trad music programs on Clare FM (Brought to you by Evergreen Health Foods!)

Absolutely gorgeous.

Land’s End

A pure emotion, free from all temptation of demonstration, traverses the entire work. Beauty is here.

Saw them at the Goderich Celtic Festival in 2019 where I picked up this album. Their afternoon performances in the tent were spellbinding - one could hear a pin drop on the grass during their sets. The desert island tracks on this album are 2, 6 and 12. Breathtakingly beautiful music played by lovely, lovely people.
