A national tour, scheduled for this June, will harvest the talents of three of the most highly respected musicians within the Irish traditional/folk scene.

Commenting on the forthcoming tour, Sean Tyrrell said, “Although the three of us are old hands in the business, we are very much looking forward to this tour. We respect one another’s talents and know that, as always, we will each benefit from this collaboration.
