Jane is recording a new album in Rod McVey’s studio. Having lots of fun here with daughter Anna Leyden recording backing vocals.
Maurice performs at a presentation given by fiddler Conor Caldwell at Queen’s University Belfast. The project aims to explore the historical development of song in Ireland from earliest times to the mid 19th century and is destined to become an online resource. Maurice has contributed 2 songs, The Belfast Mountains and Jane of Tyrone.
Maurice and I are just back from a wonderful trip to Connecticut with the highlight appearances at the Mystic Sea Music Festival.Thanks to our friends, singers Dan and Bonnie Milner who made it possible for us to make the trip and were such generous hosts. Congrats to Festival Director Geoff Kauffman and the whole crew at Mystic for a memorable few days in the idyllic Mystic Seaport. Thanks also to Laura Travis and Jon Campbell for having us on local radio with Bonnie and Dan Milner.
