Re: So There You Go, Irish Tenor Banjo

Rather surprised this isn’t already here. I believe this was independently released in 2012 (to iTunes, anyway). This is the banjo player from that fantastic album "The Kitchen Recordings", along with box player Larry Egan, who is also featured on a few tracks of this album. O’Driscoll definitely has a distinctive playing style, very tight, and the triplets are very crisp and not usually swung. Only had a cursory listen so far; definitely excited to hear more of it!
