This is a wonderful album! I found it by accident browsing in a music store, and it just looked interesting. Very appealing tunes, very tastefully played.

Gerry Robichaud also played in a group called The Maine French Fiddlers, which had a ceili band sound. Their album, which includes some Irish tunes is still available from Thirty Below :

I’ll try to post it here when I get enough time. (Or maybe someone will beat me to it.)
