When we asked Nick for permission to add this recording to our website, he said this, "From a technical and historical perspective it's good to hear the bones played with acapella voice, which was a long tradition of their use, especially in Ireland. So often one hears them with instruments so it makes a change. I would also like to use it as it is a way of remembering my dearest friend Liam Molan who was such a consummate shawnessy singer and musician and who I always played with until he died so very young of cancer."
