Irish Music from the Hudson Valley

By Dylan Foley and Dan Gurney

Two comments

With Alec Finn and Brian McGrath

Dylan and Dan, half of the Yanks, are top-billed on this album, but in addition to their phenomenal melody playing, the bouzouki and piano of Finn and McGrath give this album a classic feel.

The lads dedicated the recording to Father Charlie Coen and Mike McHale, two influential Irish immigrants to the Hudson Valley that had formative influences on them throughout their lives. The tune selections were based on tunes that Mike and Father Charlie either play or would like, including several that Dan and Dylan learned directly from them.

A pure delight, as I expected from these two. Especially enjoy the relaxed tempo, honoring the melodies.
