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
This was reissued by Dónal as a CD almost a decade ago - http://www.donalmaguire.co.uk/discography.html.
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.
