Two comments

Once again,

Vincent displays his mastery of a unique style of fiddle playing. He’s joined at various points by: Seamus Bugler, Geraldine Carrig, Tim Collins, Ged Foley, Pat Mac and Padraic O’Reilly.

A nice touch (following The Pigeon on the Gate) is The Star of Munster in Gm followed by The Teetotaller in F. He also does The Cliffs of Moher in Gm on another track.

A real belter of a track is the one with Seamus Bugler, who Vincent plays regularly with. Great power in those tunes.

The CD has its official launch at the official opening of the first phase of the Tulla Comhaltas Cultural Centre, Cnoc na Gaoithe, on the weekend 28th June to 1st July 2012.
