Winter at Maugha 1996-97

A new collection from the Ail Fionn lo-fi archives. This is all from the winter we spent with Mike, Cathy and family up at Maugha, a farmhouse in the mountains of West Cork. A couple of traditional tunes mixed in with various original pieces we were developing at the time. The stuff that sounds like it was transcribed off a wax cylinder was recorded on a variety of terrible cassette recorders at Maugha itself. The slightly better sound-quality material was recorded on something considerably more sophisticated at Paul's house near Ballydehob (or Skibbereen?) one evening when Mike drove Inge, Andy and myself over there for a session.
