This long-awaited first album from Maidhc Dainín Ó Sé contains a selection of music, song and verse. Accompaniment is provided by his son Caoimhín, as well as Fergus Flaherty, John Brown and Eugene Kelly, and also includes guest musicians Johnny Connolly on melodeon, accomplished fiddler Nóirín Ní Ghrádaigh and Aisling Ní Neachtain on harp.
Mighty Mike is a compilation in his own right, with sparkling box-playing, original songs in Irish and a memorable poem. This is quintessentially Kerry, with slides taken in a witty conversational style and polkas all decked up and sprightly.
