Settle out of Court - John & Maggie Carty

Settle out of Court - John & Maggie Carty

Regular price €20.00 Sale

John Carty (fiddle and banjo) and Maggie Carty (banjo, keyboard and vocals) with Shane McGowan (guitar) and Dónal Lunny (bouzouki, guitar and bodhrán).

One of the strongest hallmarks of traditional Irish music is the handing down of the music from generation to generation, and this album gives an insight into a living and evolving tradition that spans at least four Carty generations. The tunes on this album come from a variety of sources: from different musical dialects and from our wide family of musical friends. We would like to dedicate this album to all our late musical comrades no longer with us but who so generously shared of their talent, of their musicality, of their knowledge and of themselves. In particular, we think of our more recently departed great friends Kevin O’Brien, Packie McPartlan, Ted McGowan, Brendan Griffin, Jimmy Philbin and Brendan Farrelly.
