Demo: Ballyfin Polkas

On the Chieftains collection Water From The Well is a track called Ballyfin Polkas. There are five sections and I noodled around with them enough to get three, played here. Ballyfin is a village in the midlands of Ireland among the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Here’s a view of the mountains from the Glinsk Castle Hiking Loop:

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans.
