The first solo album from the legendary Galway accordion player Mairtin O’Connor highlights his innovative musical approach and incredible technique.

Joining O’Connor to create an album that set new standards for accordion playing are the talents of Donal Lunny, Gerry O’Beirne, and Colm Murphy.

Mairtin O’Connor went on to perform and record with De Dannan for several years, and has made a number of solo recordings since, with mostly his own compositions.

His intense and exuberant playing, influenced in part by the playing of the famous Galway piper Patsy Touhey, are enabled by his technical mastery of the instrument.
