“This CD is amazing and my favorite record of 2014 … well done to everyone involved  Luka Bloom

Red Peters once sang “I had my breakfast in Mississippi and my dinner in Tipperary Town”. A proud Tipperary Town man, Red was Dublin’s leading blues singer through the 70’s and 80’s. This family-released memorial double CD is a gem.  Christy Moore
