Re: Aughavinna

Thank you so much for adding our album Jeremy!

It is now released and available to order as CD or Digital Download from my own website https://tunesfromdoolin.com/

JB is a wonderful fiddle player from Brittany and I am a concertina player based in Doolin, co. Clare for 15 years but from Switzerland originally. We are accompanied on the album by Vincent Fogarty (bouzouki) and Alan Wallace (guitar) and the album was recorded, mixed and mastered by the amazing Jack Talty.

A few words from JB and myself, taken from the album sleeve notes :

"When we met for the very first time, at the Sunday afternoon session in Gus O’Connor’s Pub in Doolin, we instantly connected on a musical level. We met regularly for tunes after that, realising that we enjoyed the same tunes, looked up to the same musicians and simply shared the same love for Irish Traditional Music, and the music from County Clare and East Galway in particular.

A few months later, in November 2017, JB was looking for a room to spend the winter in County Clare. Charles had a spare room available and JB moved in with him, at his house in Aughavinna, Doolin. We ended up sharing the house for a full year, playing, listening and discussing music on a daily basis. We enjoyed playing together so much that we had the idea (after a few pints maybe) to make a recording together, but more as a
souvenir of our musical friendship than an actual album. We still wanted to do things properly though, and so we contacted Jack Talty who guided us throughout the process. It was actually Jack who suggested that we should record at the house, in order to capture the essence of our music in a familiar environment. And his suggestion was most welcome, as neither of us had any experience in recording.

This album is therefore the result of sharing music together daily for a year, condensed in two days of recording, at our home in Doolin. We tried to pay tribute to the many musicians who have inspired and helped us on our musical journey, and we hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we love playing together."
