McCarthy, Tommy & Louise Costello
\r\nGrace Bay - Tommy McCarthy & Louise Costello
\r\n
\r\n

\r\n\r\nThis is the first, and long overdue recording from a couple who need no introduction to lovers of Irish music on both sides of the Atlantic.\r\n\r\n
\r\n
\r\n

Though Tommy was born and raised in London, we can hear through his father's influence the accent and rhythmic pulse of pure authentic West Clare music. Echoes of Bobby Casey and Willie Clancy can be heard in his bowing and choice of tunes.\r\nLouise's lyrical box style is a natural consequence of playing with her father Dinny and local fiddlers Joe Morris and Jim O' Brian. In her late teens she broadened her musical horizons and became part of Galway's vibrant session scene. It was there that her banjo playing became influenced by Charlie Piggot. \r\n

Owners of the famous Burren Bar in Somerville, MA., Tommy McCarthy & Louise Costello, have established The Burren as the premier venue for traditional music in the U.S. This body of work showcases a perfect blend of the regional styles of West Clare and North Galway.\r\n
