Re: Spanish Point

Debut album by the fantastic Irish whistle player Kevin Meehan. I listen to this on Bandcamp so no sleeve notes, unfortunately so I only have the names of the tracks, not the tunes.

From his Bandcamp page:

Spanish Point is my debut tin whistle album that I have been working on with the lads for the past few years . A lot of the music and tunes on this record have been inspired by locations of great traditional music importance such as Clare , The University of Limerick and Glasgow. I hope you all enjoy listening to my first complete musical release and I look forward to sharing more original music as time goes on.

"Skillfully weaving traditional and contemporary sounds with technical brilliance, Kevin Meehan’s music sparkles with pure joy"

Found the tunes names on Bandcamp! 🙂

Re: Spanish Point

Less than 36 mins of music. Francis and Aine O’Connell, my most recent purchase, gave 58 mins of music for the same money. Just thought I’d mention it.
