Although best known as a solo performer, Tommy’s playing is central to the first and probably best album by this innovative group. A classic.
Tommy’s first commercial album, recorded live between October 1974 and January 1976, and issued by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann. Some really great playing, with fire and passion. Highlights include his playing of “The Green Hills of Tyrol” and “The Green Fields of Glentown”, and a really fantastic performance of “Jenny’s Welcome to Charlie”.
Tommy is accompanied by renowned singer and guitar player Paul Brady. Some really passionate playing in evidence here.
This album features Tommy in duet with master flute player Matt Molloy, with energetic accompaniment by Paul Brady. Another classic.
Here, Tommy is accompanied by Derry man Dáithí Sproule. The title is from a Scott Skinner piece.
A commercial issue intended as a tutor, with accompaniment by Manus Lunny.
Recorded at home on a four-track tape recorder with Alph Duggan providing accompaniment, this album features Tommy’s soulful playing of some of his beautiful original compositions. Unlike the other recordings, this album was issued by Tommy himself.
This album mixes some older recordings from the 1980s with some more recent pieces.
