FTX-155 - THE RISING SUN

MICHO RUSSELL - Irish penny-whistle

Micho (1915-1994) of Doolin, Co Clare, was one of the best-loved Irish musicians of all time, to quote Bill Ochs. He was also, to borrow a line from the old song, "a man you don't meet every day". These recordings feature his tin-whistle playing, his talk and his singing recorded at concerts, in homes and in the studio between 1990 and 1993.
