A Note To The Fans

Our musical journey continues with "No End In Sight", the name of our latest CD. There’s songs of love, hope, resistance, sailors, whiskey, mayhem and murder, so yes, we tried to please everyone. Old friend Kevin Evans, of Evans & Doherty, joined in with some hearty vocals, and Shane Farrell added some banjo and mandolin. Our long-time engineer, Rick Salt, played some electric guitar, and kept us supplied with cups of Irish tea, Barry’s and Thompson — both great! For hundreds of years, the Irish have used humour and music to help them through the bleak times, and so the trend continues. So have a good laugh to yourself, pour a wee drop of your favourite beverage, and enjoy the music. Try it — you’ll see!

Sláinte, George Millar
