I came across this CD on "eBay" a few weeks back, and bought it because I’d heard and enjoyed listening to the banjo playing of Pat Bass one year at the Paddy O’Brien weekend in Nenagh, and again at one of the weekends in Glasgow in memory of the late, great Jimmy McHugh [RIP]. This recording is a mix of group and solo playing from various members of Pat’s family, including John Snr, [ melodeon and accordion ], John Jnr.[ also accordion ], Elizabeth [ piano ], and Pat on banjo. Frankie harper plays drums. Two songs are sung by Richard Kimmins. The family come from Annagh, in north County Wexford. The CD is dedicated to the memory of their daughter and sister Julie, who sadly passed away in 1997.
