From the Parlour

From the Parlour: A fabulous CD featuring fifteen (15) tracks of Irish & Scottish Traditional tunes. This album professionally recorded in the natural setting with acoustic piano, guitar and double bass captures a sense of feeling and energy which can sometimes get lost in the clinically correct and overproduced studio album. In fact, the sound heard on this album, is reminisecent of recordings that pre-date the multitrack high tech era. Accompanied by: James Blennerhassett....Double Bass, Marie Askin...Acoustic piano, Matt McGrannaghan....Fiddle and Tim Murray....Acoustic Guitar.
