James Keane - "Live in Dublin"
Recorded live at "WHELAN`S" Dublin,Ireland.
With friends :

Fiddle: Sean Keane - Chieftains , also my Brother.

Flute : Mick O`Connor.

Bodhran: Kevin Conneff - Chieftains.

Guitar and Mandocello: Garry O`Briain.


The casual excellance of his playing betrays not only a considerable talent but also a respect and devotion to the music,which has been the hallmark of Keane`s playing for a long time now. This is hardly surprising for a man cradled among the giants of the last generation:Leo Rowsome,Willy Clancy,Joe Cooley,Tommy Potts,Sonny Brogan,John Kelly,Paddy Taylor and Tommy Reck. - Jim Kelly - Irish Music Magazine.


"This was a homecoming gig to be savoured, an all-to-rare tincture of the right stuff from a man who has revelled in its midst for upwardsof four decades now.......
Siobhan Long - "The Irish Times"



Paul Brady - Popular singer and performer.
