FIDDLEWINGS - Manus McGuire Solo Album

2006 Release
Liner notes intro by Seamus Connolly
http://www.manusmcguire.com/

Manus McGuire, and his brother Seamus are among my original inspirations to play Irish music, and more particularly, the fiddle. So I was keen to find out about a recent solo album from Manus, Fiddlewings, following his acclaimed Saffron & Blue of 2000.
I was delighted to chance upon a copy in Dublin’s Claddagh Records, and a few days later, May 3, 2014 found myself in Kinvara town, Co. Galway for a live reunion concert of Buttons & Bows at the Cuckoo Fleadh, with Jackie Daly, accordion and Garry O’Briain, tenor mandolin & guitar — a fabulous show.

Must agree, both Manus and Seamus are fantastic musicians, and a great pleasure to hear them again in Kinvara. Looking forward to the next concert of Buttons and Bows.
