WAM Feb 02-03 Liner Notes The McGrath Family - "Make the Circle Wide"
We all know how those parties go ... a few drinks, a plate of food, then out come the guitars, whistles, drums, and before you know it ... party.
Liner Notes today features a party that drew family - those are well-known, too.
But family from all over the world! The McGrath Family has members on four continents and many of them descended on Dublin last year.
Two of the McGraths are O'Byrnes - noted traditional musicians Fergus O'Byrne and his son, Fergus Brown-O'Byrne.
One thing lead to another, and the family went into a recording studio. The result is a mix of Irish favourites and new tunes from Newfoundland, Australia and America released as a cd called Make The Circle Wide.
