- Seamus Begley & Tim Edey - Disgrace Notes
He’s back, with a fire in his belly that’d set flame to the western seaboard. Seamus Begley’s accordion traces a characteristically ferocious path through local tunes and songs from west Kerry on the aptly titled Disgrace Notes , but the finesse of the arrangements, the eclecticism of song choices and the riches mined by his collaborators (including Rita Connolly, Shaun Davey and Begley’s daughter, Méabh, whose fine-boned backing vocals glisten alongside brother Eoin’s concertina) elevate this gloriously ragged-edged collection to the top drawer. Guitarist Tim Edey brings a fresh-faced poise to the guitar accompaniment, and he and Begley have forged a partnership that caresses the tiptoeing Night at the Fair set as beautifully as it does the haunting A mhrán na Leabhar and the powerhouse polka set, Polcaí Eoin (composed by Eoin Begley).
