Album Notes
The Dunbrody was one of the ships that took victims of the Irish famine took America. A replica of the ship is moored at Waterford in Ireland and I visited her during a holiday one year. I'd read a little about the Irish famine, but seeing a full size replica brought home the horrors of that period home very vividly. Not just how small the ship was, but the conditions that those poor emigrants had to endure. It had a profound effect on me. As soon as I got home I picked up a guitar and Voyage of the Dunbrody was the first track that I composed.

Voyage of the Dunbrody review
This album left me totally in awe of Jim's playing and the sound of his wonderful Fylde Oberon guitar. The music is pure and clear and full of emotion. It inspired me to go to Ireland and visit the ship The Dunbrody for myself. I have yet to hear a pice from Jim Ronayne that does not raise the goose pimples and hairs on the back of my neck!

Keep it up Jim! More albums please!
Andy Paskins


must have for any aspiring contemporary guitarist
this album currently shares time with simon fox's "a winters tale" in my car. If i had to pick a favourite track it would be hard, voyage of the dumbrody sticks in your head but you would have to go a long way to hear a more beautiful arrangement than "kissing thy sweet lips"

Keith Offord

Sublime acoustic guitar
Here's a great album for anyone who loves the sound of acoustic guitar played well. Jim has a great technique, the recording quality is excellent and the tracks are very listenable - I particularly liked Storm over Glencoe. All the years of studying the world's great fingerstyle players has paid off and this one deserves to be in lots more CD collections.
