Two comments

Released on Gael Linn (CEFCD 189), a tie-in with the excellent TG4 series.

The record is an attempt to capture a live “session” feel; this is not always altogether successful since many of the participants are established bands and the playing reflects that fact. However, many of the individual tracks do, indeed, have an air of spontaneity about them that suggests a more informal session approach.

The featured artists are:

1. Providence
2. Liz and Yvonne Kane with John Blake
3. Jackie Daly and Seamus Creagh
4. Gerry (Banjo) O’Connor and Tom Kenna
5. Seamus O Beaglaoich and Jim Murray
6. The Boys Of The Lough
7. At First Light
8. Conor Keane, Meabh Boyd and Martin O’Malley
9. At The Racket
10. Brid Ni Mhaoilchiarain
11. Joe Burke, Matt Molloy and Anne Conroy Burke
12. Gay McKeon
13. Dana Lyn, Patrick Ourceau and Eamon O’Leary
14. Charlie Lennon and Johnny Og Connolly
15. John Spillane
16. Ronan Browne and Peter O’Loughlin
17. Vincent Campbell, Jimmy Campbell and Peter Campbell
18. Noel Hill and Tony Linnane
19. Mairtin O Connor, Cathal Hayden, Brendan Larrissey, Dessie Adams, Brendan O’Regan and Johnny McDonagh
