Re: Garvan Hill: CD 1 of 3

Many, many thanks to our man Kenny for making me aware of this. It’s a recently released 3-CD set of the music of Mickey Doherty, John’s somewhat lesser-known brother. His style is somewhat different as you can hear on a few available recordings of his playing and also here:

You can get it from Claddagh (20 euros) or from Cairdeas na bhFidiléirí (slightly more expensive there). The trackless is from https://www.mustrad.org.uk/reviews/m_doherty.htm. Some additional commentary can be found there as well.

I just ordered a copy, so I’m really looking forward to hearing this! I will be sure to update the listing here if I see anything wrong.
