Open Hearth

This is a great recording based on the music Andrew and Mary learned as children from such great players as Joe Bane and John Naughton. This is how East Clare music SHOULD be played,
Nice and steady with great feeling and lift.
Mary and Andrew are in my opinion the best exponents of East Clare music around today.
The record is on own label ref MAC 01 and is available from Andrew or Mary direct or from Custy’s music shop in Ennis Co.Clare there are links on my website http://claremusic.tripod.com

Cut 7, Joe Bane’s Jig, is a version of The Cat that Ate the Candle (aka The Cow that Ate the Blanket). The link here goes to Joe Bane’s Reel.
