"I got this album from a relative of Crottys, always trusting that she knows good Irish music. Once again, I was VERY pleased. This is an incredible CD that gets better the more I listen to it. The first track, a favorite set in Baltimore sessions now, really draws you in, and the fun never stops."
P.J.Crotty was well known in the London Irish scene throughout the 60s and 70s, particularly as a member of the group "Le Cheile".
Irish Music Review:
This is just the sort of album to bring relief to any tired reviewer! Happy to Meet whisks the listener instantly to West Clare, its unhurried graces ever easy on the ear and possessing enough charm to put a fakir out of business.
The name of the Lahinch-based flute-player P.J. Crotty will be familiar to many whove visited Clare or remember him from his days in London during the 1970s and, lets not forget, hes married to Angela, daughter of Junior and Cissie Crehan. The Cullinans may be less well-known (unless youve stayed in their excellent guesthouse in Doolin). James, the fiddler, hails from Derula, near Kilnamona, and appears on Kevin Crawfords album In Good Company, as well as banjo-player Kevin Griffins Ossian label CD. Finally, Carol was born and raised in Ennis and was taught to play traditional music on the piano by Geraldine Cotter. The trio are joined on Happy to Meet by the albums producer, Kevin Crawford, who unveils his skills on the bodhrán, alongside Mick Conneely who hangs up his fiddle in favour of the bouzouki and, finally, John Blake who appears on guitar and piano.
The albums tune selection is exemplary, not least in the variety on offer reels, jigs, hornpipes, barndances and both a waltz and a slow air for good measure. Their sources are predominantly from Clare and neighbouring Galway with a smattering of compositions by the likes of Paddy OBrien, Michael Gorman and James Morrison. However, no matter the source, the relaxed West Clare style dominates the proceedings and is best heard on Junior Crehans The Sheep in the Boat and the reel Tomeen ODea, the latter offering both P.J. and James the chance to explore the melodys various directions. All this and more is aided on many of the tracks by some of the best, most understated piano accompaniment heard for a very long time.
Guaranteed never to pall, Happy to Meet should be top of everyones shopping list.
