I have been recording music for over a decade now and thought that it was time to share some of it with you as myself! Most of these tracks were recorded with singer/ songwriter Ric Blair for his CD's. Five of the tracks were recorded live in concert during an evening called "Pat D'Arcy & Friends" in San Juan Capistrano, California on June 17, 2006 [The Cual Aodh/ Fraher's Jigs - The Rocky Road to Dublin/ The Dusty Miller Jigs - An Fáinne Ór - The Ace & Deuce of Pipering - An Leanbh Sídhe/ The Independent Hornpipe] I hope you enjoy the few tunes! ::: more»
