Mary Custy & Eoin O’Neill with a lot of help from their friends

I picked up this album simply because I’d never come across a solo or duet album of Mary Custy, who often appears as a guest in so-called "star" musicians’ recordings.

In this album, Mary and Eoin are joined by Miko Russell, Terry Bingham, Sharon Shannon, Kevin Griffin, and Ian Lamb. How gorgeous! (But please note they join one by one.)

The sound quality of this album is not so good, but all the more it makes an intimate feel. Really soulful and joyful recording.

Kevin Griffin’s Reels

The first one sounds like a version of Galway Rambler, and the second is probably Sheehan’s transposed in D.

Just got this from Custy’s to replace one I lost still as good as ever even though the recording is sometimes a bit rough round the edges. takes me back to Doolin in the mid 90s

I’ve been looking for this delightful album since my cassette version gave up on me a few years ago ; can anybody help?
