***The Tribute CD ***

Accompanied by guitarist Pat Conroy (previous accompanist to the late great Sean Maguire) and James Quinn on Piano/Bass, this CD demonstrates once again why so many people consider Jim McKillop to have a unique talent for expressive and emotional playing together with superb technical expertise.
