ISAO & MASAKO MORIYASU: PADDY & BRIDGET & THEIR GREAT FRIENDS 2
"Paddy and Bridget," as these two Japanese musicians who have become regular visitors to Clare are known there, are at it again, and this second CD is as enjoyable as the first. The list of "their friends" is a true who's who of Clare (and a few other places) musicians, Michael Tubridy, P.J. and Martin Hayes, Chris Droney, Gerdie Commane, Peadar O'Loughlin, Mary MacNamara, Mary Custy, Eoin O'Neill, Antoin MacGabhann, Brian McNamara, and the list goes on. The Moriyasus' skills have noticeably improved and their playing fit very nicely with that of the local musicians. A gem of an album.
