Hello SingsIrish(Mary Kate, is that right/)

Barley Bree is a group that was originally members related to Tommy Makem, Nephews I believe. They've recorded for 20 years or so in one form or an other until most recently they were PV O'Donnell and The Sweeny Brothers, Tom and Roscoe(?). The brothers were the primary vocalists and they did some fine work. Very nice tight singing and they did a nice range of traditional styles not just Irish. Tom plays guitar and very nice whistle, Roscoe(?) plays guitar and banjo and both sing equally well. P. V. O'Donnell is an excellent fiddler. They aren't together any more unfortunately. Tom is actively touring and recently played in Syracuse, NY. Did an excellent show. I have many of their recordings and I'm not disappointed with any of them. Ofcourse Colin may disagree but I think theyare a good mix in the tape file.
