The Pied Piper's Call: Music from Ireland and Other Worlds

Tim Britton with Mark Simos, Albert Alfonzo and Friends
1993 Tim Britton

Tim Britton is one of my all-time favorite musicians and people; a gifted piper, whistle player, improviser, tunesmith, accompanist. He also taught me to eat bee pollen, not to ride in roadsters with him (the week after he got his driver's license he rear-ended a cop car!), to beware of people practicing TM on the third floor above my bedroom, and to treasure true musical companionship when you're lucky enough to find it. This album was recorded at an audiophile's retreat, far from the disturbing influences of the electromagnetic effluvia of the Grid of Which We Are All Unfortunately Part. Other worlds indeed!

The Starry Lane to Monaghan
Fintan Vallely & Mark Simos

1991 Whinstone Discs

Fintan is a great flute-player, originally a piper, with a strong rhythmic "pushing breath" style in the tradition of some of the great older style Northern players. This album was a reunion effort for us after many years had passed since our 1984 Shanachie release. After recording this Fintan and I got to play Irish music around Verona, Italy. Reciting the Myles na Gcopaleen "Catechism of Cliche" the entire way...
