From now February 23, until the end of March, if you order a copy of “The Crossing” from my website https://timobrien.net, you will also receive a free copy of its follow-up CD “Two Journeys”. Both CDs explore the cultural relationship between Ireland and America, and the musical kinship between Celtic and Appalachian music, so you’ll want these discs in your player on Saint Patrick’s Day.
Originally released in 1998, and re-released last May, “The Crossing” features traditional and original tunes and songs performed by Tim and musical friends like Del McCourty, Paul Brady, Earl Scruggs, and Altan. “Two Journeys”, from 2001, continues the same theme with a set group of players including Kevin Burke, Karen Casey, Dirk Powell, and John Williams.
I have a new recording done and ready to be mastered. We are putting together the pieces, so please stay tuned.
Wear a mask, wash your hands, get vaccinated and we love ya, Tim and Jan
