Has anyone heard this yet?
I make no claims for it good or otherwise, except to say
That I'm a huge Mary Macnamara fan.

I have just returned from a great trip to Ireland and I want to recommend a wonderful CD I found of Young musicians from East Clare who have been students with the great Mary Mac Namara who is a very influential musician and teacher there.

"The album is a fundraiser for music exchanges with young musicians from other countries"

Haven't heard the CD but saw them during the summer:

There are people dedicated to teaching young musicians all over the country. As CDs go you may also want to listen to the Ceol na nOg CD Brid O Donohue produced of her pupils playing in various groupings.

Here is more about the exchange Mary is currently involved in. She'll be in the U.S. in a few weeks bringing a group of her younger musicians. They are part of an exchange program with younger musicians from the eastern U.S. You can learn all about it here (& please share with others, & support if you can!):

I have a copy and have found it quite enjoyable. It's been in heavy rotation on my CD player for the past weeks. I'd recommend it.

Unfortunately I was not able to attend either of the events this past weekend involving these young folks during their current trip to the Boston area, but have been mightily impressed with their recorded skills.

Best wishes.

Steve
