    Demo XXIII - Any Suggestions ?

    Beautiful soul and Chris Filmore's guitar is superb. Starts out a little too SRV, but moves past that. Bought the LP from Tower Records in Ireland, hope it's well recorded ? Fantastic recommendation - thanks.

    Demo XXIII - Any Suggestions ?

Over the Christmas holidays, we usually have many listening sessions and select the most compelling songs. It's truly a labour of love; some...

    Ash What caught my eye was: Paul is also playing Vicar St again next March with Andy Irvine, Donal Lunny etc in case you were planning your trip to Ireland around then. That's terrific news, as Paul Brady stopped playing folk music for decades and he is a fabulous musician who attracts the...

    I was last in Perth in June 2018; went to say goodbye to a brother on his deathbed - yuck. Have wonderful happy memories of cycling along the Swan with him. Perth is a beautiful city with fantastic amenities; a wonderful place to raise a family. Listened to "Colt" on Tidal and ordered the LP...

    There are many people to thank every year for their help in compiling the Demo CD. The Streaming services unfortunately do not every every version, not to mention every song. Still the streaming services are a great means for sampling before you buy. Glad you folk are enjoying the music...

    Thanks for the music recommendations Ash, I do need to swing by your side of the world; I need to set up a pair of Graham speakers for review with Srajan. Galway is a blast; for those forum members who appreciate beautiful rugged scenery, then Connemara is worth a visit. During the summer...

    We opened the Method & Madness “Single Malt” last night, prefer it to the Single Grain by a wide margin. Borh taste different to each other but the Single Malt has a much longer finish. The taste is more complex; initially on the pallet, its like an explosion in your mouth; different taste...

    Dia Dhuit, I left Cork City in 1978 and have lived all around the world since then. Still have family & friends in Cork, so lots of reasons to return regularly. I am supposed to visit Srajan Ebaen (6 Moons) near Westport, Co Mayo earlier this year for a speaker review, but have had to delay the...

    Method & Madness (a brief introduction) Irish Distillers have many long-established brands, such as Jameson, Redbreast, Powers, Midleton Very Rare, and the Spot range, so while these are fabulous brands that can be carefully refined and allow to evolve organically, they do not allow much room...
