ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
It is more than 20 years since I recorded “Slipstream”, an album of Reels/Jigs etc on guitar. I hope to make up for lost time with this my second instrumental album “Ireland West Guitar”
My late Father who played fiddle and flute,was for me a major early influence, as he would sometimes tap my guitar with his bow, letting me know he wanted me to play the tune rather than the accompaniment. The daily musical menu in our house consisted of the recordings of Michael Coleman, Paddy Killoran and John McKenna among others. In general however, my guitar style was and is mostly influenced by the west of Ireland flute players. Their ornamentation very much appeals to me and I still find getting around those rolls on Guitar quite a challenge , though an enjoyable one ! I sincerely hope you will find listening to these tunes equally enjoyable !

The album features guest appearances on some tracks by the following masterful musicians: Matt McGranaghan (Fiddle), Paul Gurney (Piano and Accordion), Keith Connolly (percussion) and Paudraig McGovern (Uillean Pipes). The album was recorded at Paul Gurney’s RealWorld Studios in Longford,
