Re: Farewell to Music
Farewell to Music is a collection of slow airs that Tony recorded some years back, before retiring from public performance due to a hand tremor. It was initially produced by Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh, with sound engineering by Kieran Lynch, and then by Jack Talty. Across thirteen previously unreleased tracks, the album represents the profound beauty and unsentimental empathy that Tony achieved and is so celebrated for in his playing of slow airs.
