A little rougher-edged and livelier than Connie Dover's solo work
Traditional Irish tunes and songs
This is an American band that plays traditional Irish folk with a great clarity and strong musicianship, with the added strength of Connie Dover's shining voice. (Neile)
Recommended first album:
Last Night's Fun is the only one I've heard
Last Night's Fun
1992—City Spark Records, 2920 McGee Trfwy, Kansas City, MO 62208
Out of print
Highly recommended for fans of traditional folk
Connie Dover—vocal, keyboard, harmonium
Gerald Spaits—upright bass
An interesting and somehow clear collection of songs and tunes. My favourites are "Rosemary Lane" and "The May Morning Dew" where Connie Dover's voice is the focus of the song (odd, because I haven't liked the solo work of hers I've heard—it seems too smooth for me). Anyway, this is recommended if you can find it. (Neile)
