seamus quaide A beautiful traditional record that no home should be without. Tony Mac Mahon and Steve Cooney play with fluidity throughout. The live setting shines through with every note. Gorgeous stuff! Favorite track: The Wounded Huzzar.

Ian Martyn What isn't there to love about this album? Tunes played by a master box player accompanied by an awesome guitarist! Seriously, just got this and can't get enough of it! Favorite track: Brother Gildas' Jig, Port Shean Sheáin.

Rolf Gidlow Tony MacMahon's music comes from a very deep place, something that cannot be imitated or taught. When listening to him you're listening to the history of the land and the people. I could not name a favorite track on this recording; the one I listed is simply the one that just played. Every one is a treasure. Favorite track: The Humours of Drinagh, A Trip to Athlone.
