Electrifying fiddler Tommy Peoples made his first and only recorded appearance with The Bothy Band on 1975, the band?s debut album. Peoples propels the group through a brilliant selection of jigs, songs, and especially reels. As the late Frankie Kennedy of Altan remarked, ?They played the tunes straightforwardly, but they had the fire in their bellies.? That fire is nowhere more evident than on this album.
