Info on The Rights of Man, Colm Gannon

Colm Gannon, on his new solo album, “The Rights of Man” is accompanied by Alec Finn on Bouzouki and Johnny “Ringo” McDonagh on Bodhran (both members of the original DeDannan), John Blake on piano and guitar and special guest, Kelly Gannon on Concertina. This recording was made in The Lions Den Studio, in Raheney in Dublin which is owned and operated by John Blake.

On this recording the tunes are sourced from many places, mainly, old cylinder recordings from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s, and the 78 recordings. As well as that there are many tunes sourced from rare home recordings and music that influenced him from childhood up until the present time.

“that influenced ‘him’ from childhood up until the present time.” I gather you meant to say ‘me’… 😉

I like your list of sources and hope to get an earful of what looks to be an interesting recording, liking the title for starters…

What’s the story behind your box? In that regard I couldn’t find anything but pictures on your website.
