Both cd’s can be listened to on spotify

ALL tracks on this CD are instrumentals, no vocals. While the musicians are capable, the arrangements tend to be quite melodramatic and cheesy. Track 6, "O’Carolan’s Welcome", which begins as a harp solo, is the best of the lot in my opinion, the least messed (fkd) around with ~ sans synthesizer, no oozing and ponging blue cheese.
