  • Description

    Always associated with West Clare, the music of Bobby Casey brings to mind the sights, the sounds and smells of Clare; so vivid you can feel the rain in your face and the breeze in your hair. That's how soulful the music of Bobby Casey is.

    This release should gain Bobby his rightful place in the pantheon of traditional Irish fiddlers. Here is true genius at work, inventive, humorous, skillful, beauty, in fact all life is here. Hopefully the listener will get an idea of the nature and humour of Bobby and will have their heart warmed by his music.
    This CD has been produced by musicologist and collector Dr Reg Hall, who was at the original sessions. This music was recorded on the finest technology available at the time and has been lovingly restored and remastered for the 21st century.
