This album vindicates Johnny Connolly as one of the very best melodeon players of this country. His rhythm is flawless and controlled, and his love for the music shines through in the hearty and vivacious playing.
…An album that literally jumps with life and heady vigour…a wonderful piece of work that stands among the finest examples of recorded music on the melodeon.
The Living Tradition
Johnny Connolly is a man with a mission on a melodeon…he’s a peddler of some fine tunes siphoned from the repertoire of Joe Cooley, Michael Coleman and their ilk.
