I’m biased, but I think that Mike’s band (The Stone Soup Band) does a better job. That’s off of Free Night in Dublin, which I’ve been listening to for years, and… hey! New album! That’s going up on the Wish List.
PS: Seriously, if you have any kind of musical ability, an interest in actual traditional/folk music, and decent recording facilities, put some songs up on YouTube. It’s begging for the attention.
