Roger Burridge: fiddle
Dave Paton: concertina
Deirdre Murtha: vocals
Michael Shorrock: bouzouki, guitar

A nice recording of Irish music out of New England. All Hands Around are Roger Burridge (fiddle), Dave Paton (concertina), Michael Shorrock (bouzouki, guitar), and Deirdre Murtha (vocals). Burridge's excellent fiddle playing, which Paton's simpler New-England style concertina complements well, and Murtha's singing are the highlights of this album. Nice tunes, good songs--perhaps too simply arranged at times, but better that than the other way around.
