ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
London born John Blake and Lamond Gillespie first met in their early teens attending clareman Brendan Mulkeres music class and have been playing music ever since. Along with Leamington Spa born Mick Leahy they were a regular feature on the London session scene in the 1990s until John moved to Ireland in 1998 and Lamond to Glasgow in 2000. However distance was never going to stop them making music and in 2003 they recorded ’Traditional Irish Music From London’ along with their friends Tommy Maree and Brian Rooney. Lamond now teaches classical violin in the RSAMD in Glasgow while John works in Na Piobairi Uilleann in Dublin. They have just released their new album ’Humours of Highgate’ - check it out!

thank you!
I was waiting with bated breath for a second CD from these guys. This one lived up to my high expectations and even exceeded them on some tracks. Some wonderful unusual versions and unusual tunes (one of each in the Cliffs of Moher/The Pooka set). Track 4 is a masterpiece as is Track 8. Mighty!
