Re: The Stonemason

Okay. I’ll bite. Has this been reissued onto something other than a cassette?

Re: The Stonemason

I would doubt that very much. “Own label” recordings of that vintage seldom are. There’s no date anywhere on the tape or insert, but it’s certainly from before Sharon Shannon becoming better known to the wider musical world.

Re: The Stonemason

The sounds like a great lineup and a good recording. Is this a monster tease, or can you order this on CD somewhere. I shall search the almighty internet. Kevin is my third favorite banjo Irish banjo player of all time. I even got to humor him in Doolin with my version of “Whiskey in the Jar”. Way back in the Goodle Daze.

Opening track on “Youtube” - [ there are quite a few annoying glitches which have crept into this recording, I may remove it, but will leave it here for a week anyway ] :

Re: The Stonemason

By the look of the cover picture my guess for the recording’s date is 1985 or 1986, bearing in mind that Sharon was born in 1968 (and looks to be in her late teens).
