From Bell Harbour, Co. Clare, Droney is one of the great traditional musicians associated with the Irish concertina. This classic album was first released on the British label Topic/Free Reed in 1975. The CD includes 15 tracks from the original LP plus 6 tracks recorded at that time but not used. A thick booklet provides background information and fascinating reminiscing from the people involved in the original recording project.
