A first solo release from Leitrim fiddler player Maurice, keeping the tradition alive.

Maurice plays with great spirit, from lovely airs to high octane reels, the energy is tangible and unique.

He comes from a well-known musical family. His father Ben Lennon is a master of the Leitrim style of traditional fiddle.

His uncle, Charlie Lennon is renowned as a composer, piano accompanist and fiddler.

At age 19, Maurice won the Senior Fiddle Championship at the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil, held in Ennis in 1977. proving that he had inherited the Lennon musical heritage.

Shortly after he joined with three other All-Ireland champions to form the band Stockton's Wing, with whom he composed, recorded and performed for the next twenty-seven years.

He has spent many years in America encouraging and coaching young musicians.
