"Strings Attached" 1980





















The only album devoted exclusively to Irish music on the tenor banjo and mandolin. Mick has chosen some of his favorite tunes, many quite rare and never recorded. With the addition of bouzouki and guitar, this makes for a priceless collection of tunes, played with unmatchable exuberance and typically brilliant Moloney technique.

Just discovered a new artist, thanks! It's a pity that the vocal tracks on the "Mick Maloney" LP are distorted.

Thanks much - was just listening to some of Mick's mandolin picking on a compilation last night, thinking, "I could do with some more of this..."
