Album Notes
This tune was originally written for a musical theater show in 2003 titled Cafe Puttanesca.
Since then it has entertained crowds all over the world with its catchy chorus and distinctive "Irish humor".
In 2012, I finally went into the studio and with the help of the Irish band
Burning Bridget Cleary recorded "My Mother's Frying Pan" for posterity.

Irish Love!
This is one of the funniest, most clever Irish songs ever written. Chuck Sweeney sang it at my rehearsal dinner and my husband Jack referenced "the frying pan" in our vows. It is right up there with "When Irish Eyes are Smiling" and "Harrigan"
