Released 2014. James Murray - flute, fiddle, songs, accompanied by Ollie Ross [ piano ]. James is a leading figure and highly-respected exponent of the traditional music of South Sligo.
Track #2 is interesting, in that they are 2 of James’ original compositions. The first was posted here very recently, after being recorded by "Teada". The second was recorded by Harry Bradley on his very first solo CD as a "Sligo" reel, and also on subsequent recordings by others. I hadn’t known it was composed by James Murray until I was generously gifted this CD by 2 musicians I met at the Willie Clancy week this year, so thanks very much, Roisin and Andrew.

Worth adding that this is very good value for money - the 23 tracks make up a playing time of 72 mins. There’s a very interesting booklet with stories about Sligo musicians famous and not so well-known as well and all in all, it’s a very good package..
