Arcady's 2nd CD "Many Happy Returns" is a nice collection of old favorites, played EXTREMELY well. The story goes that Johnny McDonagh was in a session where an older musician started "the Sally Gardens" and the younger players weren't interested. The result was a project intended to get back to the old chestnuts. Nice songs as well, sung by Naomh Parsons.


Slán,
Rich
