Fun Live Album with rare tunes from Mayo
Alan Morrisroe is recorded live in New Jersey in a tour-de-force performance in which he resurrects old-style melodeon tunes from County Mayo. Alan’s main source was his own family, notably his grandmother Catty Nell, but his influences include Peter Conlon from the New York golden age and his comtemporary Paddy Joe Tighe. He mixes the tunes with engaging patter and humor which entertains as well as informs. Iris Nevins adds expert fingerstyle guitar.
I finally got it from Iris Nevins using PayPal . Great record recorded live in New Jersy 2008, not so much a resurrection as a continuation of the stream.
Nice accomp by Iris Nevins on guitar
My Gran came from Mayo and was born about the same time as his grandmother so I found it particularly good.
