Gerry is familiar as one third of ‘Smoky Chimney’. Here he plays a really elegant set of tunes with a lovely fiddle tone.
His Kerry background comes through with a share of polkas.
Nancy is the singer, and is much more capable than many singers who are much better known, using some great harmonies.
She accompanies Gerry on guitar, and there are contributions from other musicians, including a welcome return to recording by Dave Hennessy, the great Cork box player.
