Donal Maguire and band

Not entirely sure when this was released, and only available as an LP record as far as I know. Another great collection of songs and tunes, “Paddy And The Ass” being a song which always makes me smile.
The band are/were………..
Donal Maguire - vocals, tenor banjo , mandolin
Wendy Stewart - harp
Kevin Flanagan - guitar
Liam Webster - accodion
Ado Morris - whistle, bodhran
Pete Yates - hurdy-gurdy, flute, fiddle
John Murphy - uilleann pipes

Good man…….

Many thanks for that link, “MacCruiskeen”. I stand - happily - corrected.

Pete Yates RIP

What memories to find this Kenny!

I played with so many of these but especially miss Pete; he passed on too young back in the 80s if I’m not mistaken. He was only in his late 30s/early 40s methinks.

He was a fabulous bloke and musician.

All the best

This recording, along with some of Donal’s other recordings, is now available on iTunes.
Hi Brian - Pete Yates turned up at Aberdeen Folk Club one night in the early 1980s, and was surprised that I recognised his name from Donal’s recordings. Nice guy, a fine musician, and a sad loss.
