Brand new cd and a great one at that. Neary a tabla or kazoo in sight… :-)

This looks to be a fantastic album- Where might I get a copy?

Shame…..

That’s a pity with your timing, JosephC. I could have got you one last night at their concert in Banchory. The 3 lads are on tour at the moment, and are selling it at their gigs. Maybe you should ask "No Cause" where he got his copy of it. The number of CDs shifted last night, there might not be many left soon.
A great night’s music, to a near-capacity crowd, all 3 were on great form, McGoldrick in particular, I’ve never heard him play better.
They played more or less the whole of this CD, with some changes to the songs. There was 1 outstanding set for me, right at the end, when McGoldrick led them into "The Old Bush / Maudabawn Chapel / The New-Mown Meadows". Sheer brilliance. If anyone’s going to any of their future gigs they’d be doing a great service by recording it and sticking it up on "Youtube". If they’re playing in your area - and I think they said they were in Edinburgh tonight, and Inverness tomorrow, then to Cambridge [ ! ] you should go see them, but check those dates. They should be up on somebody’s website.
Hope you get a copy of the CD Joseph - good luck.

Touring…..

Not exactly as it was announced last night, but these are the dates from John McCusker’s website. Someone here must be going to one of them, surely, and maybe they might offer to get you one Joseph. They were selling for £10.

Sadly, I live on the wrong side of the pond to make any of these gigs, but hopefully I can find a copy somewhere…

If anybody happens to go to any of these gigs, maybe send me a message through the site here, and I’ll pay back via paypal or something. That, or I suppose I can ask John himself via facebook…

Coda music Edinburgh are selling it- I think they do postage over the States?

Coda Music was exactly where I got my copy from - at their stall at Celtic Connections. By the sounds of it Mike had just dropped them off there about 5 minutes earlier. As zhanglang says they should be able to post a copy internationally.

It is a pounding CD, but the quality of the recording is pretty poor (the sound breaks up at some loud bits).Anyone else found this?

I will listen to it again but don’t recall any sound problems. If anything I thought the recording quality was pretty good. Remember thought that it is a live recording and not a studio one.

Tracks 6 and 8 are swapped between the tracklists on the back cover and the inside. The back cover matches the actual CD, so I have reversed them here to match.

Thank you! I have just checked and you are right. I can’t believe I missed that one.
