Voyage of the Dunbrody

Introduction -:

But for three friends these tunes would never have even seen the light of day, so "thank you" to John Renbourn (RIP), for having given me a gentle but firm "kick up the backside" at the time to get me back playing guitar again. Romain Rabot, and Keith Offord for their musicianship in turning some very sketchy "guitar doodles" into the following tunes.

Sugar And Spice And All Things Nice

Introduction -:

This collection of tunes was written between Dec 2005 and July 2009. My nieces and nephews began having children of their own around that time, and having written Lucy's Tune. ( she was the first) It seemed obvious to try and compete the set. My Mum simply loved cuddling her great grandchildren and this CD /and these tunes are dedicated to her and them with all my love. On a short tour around Ireland a few years ago John ( Renbourn ) and I started jamming around Lucy's Tune, and several months later John very kindly added his second part to the tune, so it appears here in the duet version.
