Jane’s 1982 album Waves of Time now available for download!

Delighted to say my first album ‘Waves of Time’ released by Claddagh Records in 1982, is now available for download from Amazon Music and iTunes. I bypassed the CD moment and have made the leap straight from vinyl to download! I recorded it with the late, great Shaun (Mudd) Wallace in Homestead Studios, Co. Antrim. My brother Frank Cassidy features on guitar and bouzouki and Joe McHugh plays uilleann pipes. The great Italian pianist Antonio Breschi performs my version of Shaun Davey’s ‘The Brendan Yoyage’ with me, which I turned into a song. Maurice took the wonderful cover photo as well as playing the Indian Harmonium. Other friends like Paddy Finney and Gerda Spence feature.
