Airs and Graces

by Paul Brennan

Irish Traditional Music and song. This album incorporates old recordings going back a few decades along with more recent ones. There will therefore be some differences in sound quality due to the time of recording and the different studios used. I hope this does not detract from your listening experience. They are tunes and songs which I have been playing and singing for many years and for the most part learned in the Counties of Down, Antrim and London Town. A few of the tunes can be found in O’Neill’s 1001 Gems.
