Extract From CD booklet " The Best of Irish Ballads"
John Aherne is a native of West Limerick, and over the years he has established a fine reputation as a ballad singer and "character". On this CD we have endeavoured to capture the enthusiasm,gutsy singing,and spontaneity which emenates from this man on stage. John gives us a very representative cross-section of the world of balladry. There are old songs and new.
