For years now, Skip has been asked, "Why don't you have a band?" Well, be careful what you ask for!
This is the first CD from "The Healy Cartel" (visit the band's mini-site). Marc Bernier's vast knowledge of songs from many traditions and Mark Polokas skills on several instruments blend with my own playing of fifes, flutes, and strings to create a sound uniquely our own. This recording includes tunes from Ireland and America as well as songs of the land, sea, and air.
We call our music "Songs and Tunes of Loss and Adventure". Order one of our CDs and find out why. That's an offer you just CAN'T refuse...
