Sleeve Notes

In the twenty years that I have known John Sheahan I have always seen him as a man who takes great care over everything he does, and I have described him on many occasions as one of the most under-rated musicians in the country.

When I first heard Michael Howard play, about five years ago I could see the enormous potential in the combination of his excellent technique and his feel for Irish Music. This musical marriage is certainly an interesting one, I admire their inventiveness as much as I applaud their courage in making an album of all original material. These lads have done their homework … and it shows.
