\r\nOver Hills and Mountains and To Amerikay - Dennis C Winter
\r\n\r\nRamblin' with Micho Russell
\r\n\r\nIreland's Legendary Tin Whistler and Beloved Folkmusician

\r\n\r\n\r\nMicho Russell - whistler, fluter, singer and entertainer - lived his entire life in Doolin, County Clare. His influences, however, were wide-spread. There is a good reason that one of his recordings (and accompanying video) is entitled �Ireland's Whistling Ambassador�. His skills and warmth as a performer helped spread Irish traditional music across his own country, Europe, North America and the rest of the world\r\n

In this moving memoir, Dennis Winter speaks to us about two transatlantic journeys and two transatlantic travelers: himself and Micho,each, in his own way, discovering the other's place in the universe.\r\n
