The Flowing Tide
A feast of the finest Clare concertina playing form this master of Irish Traditional Concertina Music


This product is included in: The Clare Set
Chris Droney, a farmer from Bellharbour, near the Burren area of north Clare, came to the forefront of Irish music in 1956, when he won the Fleadh Cheoil All Ireland Concertina Championship at Ennis, with further All-Ireland concertina championships in 1959, 1960, and so on until 1967, when he retired "to give the others a chance"! Concerts in the USA followed, and Chris was much in demand for house dances all over Clare. Much of his repertoire came from his father, and his dance-oriented, driving style, free of over-decoration, is pure Clare playing. This CD release includes many extra tunes from the original Tams & Wayne 1974 recordings.
