The Sweet Sunny South


O’Connell’s Trip to Parliament / The Twin Katies


Castleberry’s March


“We first met the Boys years ago in Canada at one of the major folk festivals. We were impressed with the parallels in our music and theirs. We quickly became friends and in 1984 played at Harvard University on a double bill with them. Nancy has wanted to do a session with them ever since. She went to one of their shows in Atlanta, GA and lo and behold she and Cathal McConnell fell to making plans to record. And here are the results. … it was a once in a lifetime experience! We will treasure always. Good friends. Good Music.”  –  Norman Blake, Rising Fawn, GA
