Take The Bull By The Horns

Here is a display of single-row button accordion playing which will stagger you with its vitality and energy. Tom Doherty is well into his ninth decade, and plays with all of the verve of anyone one-third his age. He reveals his Donegal roots in a variety of highlands and mazurkas, which are interlaced with a sprinkling of more mainstream dance tunes. This album features his daughter Maureen Doherty Macken on flute and whistle, along with Maureen’s Cherish the Ladies mate Mary Coogan (guitar), plus Brendan Mulvihill (fiddle), Felix Dolan (piano), Maureen Glynn Connolly (keyboards), and Mick Moloney (guitar and tenor banjo). A great backup band as befits a great musician!
