I dreamed this song a while ago. Sort of a music circle in a pub. Lots of instruments and percussion and what not. I quite like it :) (Bass, lyre, bodhran, bongos, shaker, 2 mandolin tracks, multiple clap tracks)

Here's an instrumental folk Celtic sort of tune I made today. Guitar, bass, pennywhistle, mandolin, bodhran. Took about 4 hours to record all the parts properly. The result is a delightful minute and a half, I think!

A cover of Great Big Sea's cover of Ron Angel's song. I love both versions. I used guitar, bodhran, vocals. Edit: reuploaded; fixed up the vocals a bit.

A short 2-track guitar tune. I was trying to get that feeling of going out in public after lockdowns are all over. Sort of a combination of relaxing and frantic, I guess?

A great song about how conditions early in life shape our future and how some great potential just disappears.
