Bernard O'Sullivan: concertina
Tommy McMahon: concertina

Bernard O'Sullivan and Tommy McMahon are two prominent concertina players from Cre-Cooraclare, considered "concertina country" in the 1970s when the original recording session took place. Their repertoire was so vast that the producers compiled two different LPs of the two men playing together. Like on other CDs in this series, the bulk of the tracks (16) is from the original 1976 LP release, but there are 13 additional tracks chosen from original session recordings which had not been used. A thick booklet provides extensive background information and tune notes.
