Vincent McGrath: accordion
Micheal O'Seighin: piano
Jim McArdle: guitar
Eimear O'Kane: double bass

Lovely album of accordion music by this Mayo musician, a nephew of the famous John McGrath (d. 1955) who became such an influential Irish music teacher in New York. What is unusual about it is that this is also made entirely, all 28 tracks of it, of McGrath's own compositions, many of them truly outstanding tunes.
