CDs

Here are several of my later CD’s that are always for sale. Listen to a few of the music clips to get a sense of the music on each one. In the last 20 years, I have moved away from the more well-known Irish melodies and pub songs into the more lyrical and classical of Irish Music.

In this, I have been joined by friends and other musicians of great stature such as Paul Horn and the late Derek Bell, of the Chieftains.

Each CD costs $25 and includes shipping and handling.
