Long known as Gerry 'Fiddle' O'Connor, this is one fiddler whose pulse is quickened by the sheer delight in the tunes.

On this, his 2nd solo recording, Gerry draws from a wide range of sources.

The album is produced by Gerry’s son Dónal O'Connor and features a veritable who's who of traditional music - Séamie O’Dowd, Niall Hanna, Neil Martin and Seán Óg Graham amongst others.

Dónal O'Connor (piano) tracks 2,3,4,8,11; (fiddle) 9,11; (tenor guitar) 8, Niall Hanna (guitar):1,2,6, Séamie O’Dowd (guitar): 5,7, Mairtin O'Connor (accordion): 5,11, Gerry O'Conner (banjo): 7,11, Neil Martin (cello):4,6,10, Seán Óg Graham (guitar):10, Dermot Moynagh (bodhran).

"If some enterprising soul could bottle the spirit of Gerry O'Connor and market it as a panacea, then universal good health would inevitably ensue" - Songlines.

"This disc is so much more than just another album of tunes outstandingly well played. The sense of total immersion in the music-making and the joy that brings is communicated par excellence. The album title may seem to betoken that it's but a memento of Last Night's Joy: well this may be, but it's joy for this night too, and indeed for any time this sparkling disc remains on the player. And, I may say, in abundance!" David Kidman, Folk Radio.
