The Hernons - A Musical Journey from Connemara to Sligo


A musical journey from Connemara to Sligo

This CD produced in 2015 is a long time coming! PJ, Seamus and Domhnaill rarely get to play together - maybe two or three times a year and one of those times is always the December concert in the Coleman Music Centre in Gurteen. Seamus and Rodney play every week in Sligo and Eoin resurrected his musical abilities just for this CD! A major reason why we made this CD was because of the continued support of the music fanatics in Gurteen and in particular the support of the Coleman Music Centre under the leadership of John McGettrick. The CD cover tells the story of our music. PJ comes from Connemara but has lived in Sligo for well over 30 years. We can only guess that our style is some combination of Connemara and Sligo...but we will let you be the judge of that. (From CD insert)
