My Recordings!

Here are a couple of Cassettes I produced, which, 
as well as featuring a number of well known local Traditional Musicians, 
also featured a number of my more confident students.

To demonstrate that this idea of my promoting the two musical traditions of Ulster is not all just talk, here are some quotes from reviews of CDs I have produced the music for.

'From a Northern Shore'
Traditional Music from the Causeway Coast
by Dick Glasgow

1 “Dick is a Scot and lives in Co. Antrim. He is a man who's happy and contented in two music traditions, and this is reflected in the tunes he has composed.”

Aidan O'Hara

2 "It’s a magnificent CD from the great Scotsman living in Co. Antrim. A wonderful mixture between Irish and Scottish traditions."   
Mich Nielsen

'Whun a' the Kye had Names'
By Charlie Gillen and Ptarmigan

3 "Musically this album is a little treat, & don't be put off by the "Scottish Traditional Music" in the title, the tunes here have a definite Irish accent."  "They also point to the wealth of the musical tradition we share across the two communities."   
Sean Laffey
* * * * *The Bandits were a junior group I formed from some of my more accomplished students in the Ballycastle area. Liz Weir kindly offered her services by adding a couple of lovely stories to the mix & local photographer Kevin McAuley kindy donated a couple of beautiful photographs for the project.
