An instrumental feast of Irish traditional music (and some original tunes) played with great taste and character by button accordion icon Paddy O'Brien, along with Jamie Gans on fiddle, and Dáithí Sproule on guitar.
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING...
“Those familiar with O'Brien's exacting standards of performance will not be surprised to hear that Gans' fiddle follows the accordion note-for-note, in a way which allows the listener to fully appreciate and reflect on the quirky twists and turns of O'Brien's music.” — Phillipe Varlet, Celtic Grooves
