Trip to Fanore

We bought this tape from Eugene at Augusta many years ago - mid-90s. Nice album, definitely not overproduced with a couple of pipe squeaks. Eugene plays Uillean pipes, flute and tin whistle, and is accompanied by John Hoban on mandocello, banjo and bodhran, although not all at the same time.

I don’t know if it’s still available. At the time, Eugene was a farmer living in County Clare.

Eugene Lamb where are you?

Eugene Lamb a ‘farmer’? Weird! 😏 He not only plays pipes and flutes, he makes them, when the spirit moves him… Last I knew he had a workshop overlooking the sea, an old schoolhouse, in Fanore, County Clare… He is a fine musician and instrument maker…

Not a farmer

Eugene has been many things: marine biologist, consort of beautiful women, historian, singer and writer of wonderful songs, etc. But he was never a farmer. He sold the old schoolhouse some time ago and moved to Kinvarra, where he built a boat … and now sails the world.


Thanks for the link to the interview, Jumper. When we heard Eugene at Augusta I recall he made an offer to the unattached women in the crowd to come with him to County Clare to live on his farm.

Could be we were just taken in by a charming man with a roguish sense of humor.
