Touring to support the release of their new CD, Music from a Lost Continent, this trio of musicians bring a sensibility and sensitivity to their music that is second to none. Jesse Smith and Sean Gavin are American born but from traditional music royalty, and John Blake, a multi-instrumentalist from London Irish background is one of my favorite accompanists - not to mention his formidable skills on the flute. This will be just a lovely night.
Take a listen below to the wonderful blend of Jesse's fiddle and Sean on flute below. Outstanding...
