Donnybrook from Chicago
CD released 1999 as far as I can see by a group of musicians from Chicago. Comprising: Sean Ryan (pipes, flute, whistle), Davey Arwine (banjo etc), Liz Arwine (vocal), Jim Dewan (guitar etc), Chris Ryan (fiddle), Jeff Morello (bodhrán), Jen Whiting (piano), Tony Janacek (guitar), Brendan McKinney (highland pipes), Pat Broaders (bouzouki), Charlie Madigan (vocals, guitar), Jackie Moran (dumbek), Una McGlew (fiddle), Steve West (whistle), Billy Knox (guitar), Kathleen Keane (whistle), Carol Kearney (vocal), Mick Duggan (cello). The first half dozen seem to be the Donnybrook contingent and the rest their friends or brawlers!
A mixture of tunes and songs - typical USA session repertoire of a sort??
Pigeon On The Gate/Father Kelly’s/Castlekelly
Bright Blue Rose - song
She Moved Through The Fair - pipe tunes
The King Of Ballyhooly - song
The Concertina/The Virginia/The Mountain Road
Once In A Very Blue Moon - song

Bothy band influence
Real driving kinda rhythm on the tunes - Bothy band style.
Would "Mrs. Creehan’s" [ Track 10 ] = "Mrs. Crehan’s" ?
Yep, that’s it alright.
