|Traditional music & song of west Clare
MICHO RUSSELL, the flute & whistle-player of the legendary Russell Brothers of Doolin, Co Clare, learned from Clare musicians such as Johnny Doran, Willie Clancy, and concertina players Martin Kiloughery and Paddy Murphy. He was recorded by Seamus Ennis in the 1940s, and by the '70s was touring Europe. The fame of Micho
and his brothers Pakie and Gus brought legions of fans to Doolin, and the trio were recorded in 1974 for their classic LP, now released as Free Reed CD FCLAR-01, part of six-CD The Clare Set of early Co Clare concertina recordings. In 1975, Neil Wayne & Lyn Murfin recorded this important LP of Micho's unique tunes & songs, now re-released on this enhanced CD.
