A present from the Irish Autoharp Mafia

Three autoharpists combine to make this treat possible: thanks to Louis O'Dwyer in Tullamore for forwarding a Facebook message sent to him by Maeve Toner in Dublin, with a link to a YouTube video of Chris Twomey in Cork. The video shows Chris performing the old song 'Texas Rangers' as special guest of Greenshine at Jimmy Crowley's Cork Folk Club in the LV Bar, Cork city, on 26 July this year.

As a founder member of the Lee Valley String Band, Chris has one of the longest and most distinguished records of performing old-time and bluegrass music in Ireland. His solo CD Midnight on the water appeared in 2005.
