This collection of newly composed tunes is a portrait of an artist; his medium being traditional Irish music. Through his music, Connie O’Connell reveals himself as an artist who is intuitive, sensitive, refined, honest, generous and unassuming.


The titles of Connie’s tunes tell a lot about Connie the man. Family, locality, friends, tradition, moments in time and nature are celebrated; the artist’s work reflecting his life experiences and values.


Connie the composer is sincere rather than sentimental. He is practical. The new melodies are playable; within the grasp of the competent learner and attractive to leading performers.
