Sleeve Notes

"As the voice of "THE BARDS" over the years, my repertoire has always included a mix of humorous, traditional and contemporary songs, both in live shows and in studio recordings. While I would probably be known more widely for comedy songs like "Lanigans Ball" & " The Oldest Swinger in Town", it has long been my intention to record a collection of some of the finest folk songs that I have come to know and love and I finally got around to it with this album."
