BEGLEY MCKAY STOUT 2014 Seamus Begley, Catriona McKay & Chris Stout

Catriona McKay & Chris Stout collaborate with Séamus Begley.

On this fine recording, the ancient Gaelic world of Séamus Begley’s West Kerry reaches through musically diverse Scotland, onto the Shetland Islands and well beyond.  At once intimate and playful, this collaboration makes sense of the bridges that span the Celtic realm. Brian O’Donovan
