Arty McGlynn's long awaited solo CD is available now in the shop.
Almost 40 years after the release of his critically-acclaimed McGlynn's Fancy comes Botera.
10 years in the making, this is a CD that marks a return to Arty's jazz roots from the sixties (although a couple of excellent traditional jigs also sneak in).
Siobhan Long gave it a 4-star review in the Irish Times on December 5. Read it here...

Máire Ní Chathasaigh & Chris Newman's latest news...
Well, our fourth 2018 trip to the USA was terrific and the following month we spent in New Zealand was, as expected, a complete blast! We did just over 5500 kms in a little over three weeks in our hire car but it was huge fun. The Kiwis are quite fond of telling you how slow their roads are (they're mostly single carriageway with a 100km (62mph) speed limit) but once outside the town or city, there is virtually no traffic! I'd far rather drive 500 miles over there than 50 miles in the UK...
Speaking of which, we just drove 500 miles to Dartford and back earlier this week at the start of our UK autumn tour. As we passed the Dartford crossing at 5.30 pm in the pitch dark with pouring rain (and unbelievable traffic congestion) I half closed my eyes and remembered NZ State Highway 1 outside Dunedin...
We're delighted to be featured on the first programme of the "Tradfest TG4" TV series, broadcasta couple of weeks ago in Ireland (Nov 25) on TG4. You can watch it on catchup TV here.
