'Drumshanbows' CD is a celebration of traditional music from Leitrim and the surrounding hinterland by the acclaimed fiddle duet of Rónán Regan and Irene Guckian.
'Drumshanbows' is a fun name which represents a kind of fulcrum of the musical styles of Rónán and Irene, which came about as they met and formed their musical alliance and friendship in Drumshanbo, where they both teach fiddle at the annual Joe Mooney Summer School.
Five of Rónán's compositions along with many tasteful lesser heard old tunes and settings of tunes passed down by Ben Lennon, Paddy Ryan and Fr. John Quinn; along with an entertaining insight into the tunes in the form of a 24 page booklet enrich this unique North Connacht CD.
Guest artists include Paddy Ryan (fiddle), Mick Blake (piano), Ciaran Curran (bouzouki) and Tommy Murray (vocals).
