    Re: "The Flowing Bowl" - new cd by Rakish

    Good man! I hope that more folk here might support the lads efforts by downloading. It's very hard to sell music these days, so any support goes a long way!

    Re: Brendan o'Regan mandolin playing

    I toured the USA with Brendan when he was a member of De Danann, back in 1983. A true wizard of the strings and I believe he became an accomplished studio producer. Great guy!

    Re: Alec Finn RIP

    A recent clip surfaced of these two genius musicians in action in 1988.

    The very best musicians in the world appear to do so little! Finn's accompaniment is just so right and groovy.
