Colm Gannon “Return to Droim”
I’m a bit surprised that this recording hasn’t been posted yet. Colm Gannon was a box player born and raised in Boston but now lives in Connemara, where his parents are originally from. He has a great, unique style, and simple tunes like Connaghtman’s Rambles and Silver Spear are given new life on this album. John Blake accompanies him, and Jesse Smith and John Carty appears as guests on a couple of tracks.
