Live performance by Cathal McConnell

A founding member of Boys of the Lough, Cathal McConnell is stepping out with his second solo album, "Long Expectant Comes at Last." (His first was released in the mid 70's). Cathal is a passionate, vituoso flute player and tin whistler, his fingers moving like a brisk wind, but with a sweet character apparent in his singing and playing of traditional (and his own) tunes. On "Long Expectant Comes at Last," Mr. McConnell is joined by a number of stellar guests: Richard Thompson, John Doyle and Winifred Horan (both of Solas), Colm Murphy (DeDannan), Dave Mattacks, Big John and Valerie McManus, Linda Thompson, Susan McKeown, and Andy Statman. The reasult is a delightful blend of traditional and modern Celtic music. Cathal McConnell dropped by the WFMU studios to play a few tunes.


"Long Expectant Comes at Last" is available on the Compass Records label.
