Jack Power_PipeOur special concert set at Abbie’s House Concert was dedicated to the life, music and family life with my father, Jack Power, who passed away during the lunar eclipse on the morning of this show. In “Ole Dad” fashion, we decided the show needed to go on and imagined his foot tapping as we sang our songs for him.

Here’s a taste of Randal Bays’ exquisite fiddle on the air, Anach Cuain preceding the powerful song of The Blacksmith. I only recently learned that one my ancestors included a blacksmith from Cork City – so perhaps it’s only fitting that this song was such a favorite from the newly remastered from the 1983 Wildgeese recording now available here..

“I Wish My Love Was a Red, Red Rose” from the newly remastered from the 1983 Wildgeese recording now available here.
