The Clare Shout

The notes on the back describes the make/model/key of each melodeon used on the recording. I appreciated that, although I am not a box player. I also enjoyed the lilting and dancng and wouldn’t have minded more.

Here’s the album blurb for anyone not familiar wiith this player…

The Clare Shout: Famed Clare box player turns his attentions to his other two favourite pursuits, namely melodeon and lilting. These are two of the simplest forms of expression in the tradition, or rather, they should be, but Bobby’s inimitable style brings them to a level of artistry rarely seen.

I love Bobby Gardiner. Must look out for this album.
