Sleeve Notes

"In the twenty years that I have known John Sheahan I have always seen him as a make 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."

Phil Coulter
