Album Notes
The Larkin and Moran Brothers started in 2002 when young Kevin Moran joined brother Terry and the Larkin Brothers; Dan, Mike and Joe, and altered their previous life as the Larkin Brothers and Terry Moran.

It was said to be a tactic by Terry to gain a blood ally against the Larkin's- who at the time ironically found difficulty in not killing each other. But really it was suggested by Mike Larkin to replace Mike Murphy on bass as he left for a short period to start his band 'Leave'. When Murph returned he opted to play mandolin and the one time folk quartet became a full fledged Celtic rock band.

Since then they have continued to evolve as a band but one constant that has follow them since their early days is the electricity they project when performing. They are widely considered as one of the most followed and sought after Irish/Celtic music band in the Midwest. Based in Chicago- Shay Clarke of the Irish American News has said that 'The Larkin and Moran Brothers have a sense of fun and energy that is rare these days (in Irish music)...

This CD is the early recordings prior to the time when Kevin and Mike Murphy joined the band after a drunken bet. Check out all their recordings and visit their web site www.celticratpack.com
