"Oige"

Surprised that this wasn’t here, although I think this recording was only ever released as cassette format.
The first recording featuring the singing of Cara Dillon, I think she was about 16 at the time, and her version of "Sweet King William’s Town" is still one of my favourite songs ever.
Other musicians in the band were :

Paul McLaughlin - guitars and vocals
Murrough O’Cathain - flute & whistles
Rudhrai O’Cathain - fiddle
As well as vocals, Cara plays fiddle, flute and whistles.

I’ve listed the tracks as listed on the insert, but will fill in the complete titles later.

One of our members here might add some comments to this !
I should add here my thanks to Murrough, because I met him after the band did a gig at Aberdeen’s "Lemon Tree", and he was the guy who put me onto Sam Murray’s flutes - a decision I’ve never regretted.
