Yes Virginia, we are indeed still rovin’ after all these years, forty and more and still counting. If we keep this up sure we’ll soon be as old as the songs we’re singing. The roving has led us down many a road over the years, some rocky, some smooth but always interesting. Not counting the numerous compilation records, this will be our 30th album or cd for you youngsters out there. We’ve recorded 15 tracks ranging from roving to unrequited love, to forced immigration and what else?- but back to the roving again. We hope they’ll induce a smile or chuckle or maybe even a tear or two – from the songs that is, and not the singing! If you’re reading this it means that you haven’t dowloaded it, the curse of all musicians the world over, and we sincerely thank you for that. So in this busy world of computers and “high tech” confusion, we invite you to take a journey back with us to simpler times in ireland, when “men were men and sheep were scared!” so please enjoy our latest “labour of love”, and incidentally a glass of bushmills or your favourite jar would not be out of order.
