Sleeve Notes

As a musician and record producer, I am delighted to have been invited to write something here on the Jolly Beggarmen. Having worked with the boys in the studio and seen many of their live performances, I know well the high standards of which they are capable. These songs not only contain their enthusiasm and sheer love of the music but they show a dexterity of musicianship which is as delightful to behold as it is rare. I wish them continued success and invite you to join in the musical experience that is the Jolly Beggarmen.
