Frank Maher – Mahervelous!
Ask anyone in Newfoundland’s music community about Frank Maher and chances are they will tell you that he one of the finest musicians on the island. Frank has appeared as a session musician on more than forty recordings and has toured with The Plankerdown Band and Figgy Duff. Ironically, until now, Frank has never recorded an album of his own. On “Mahervelous” not only does Frank shine as the brilliant instrumentalist he is on tunes like “Stirling Castle” and “The Super Jigs” but he also brings a great sense of humour in “O’Brien Is Dead” and “Frank Maher’s Famous Non-Rhyming Limerick”. Frank is ably assisted on this recording by the Mahers Bahers – Christina Smith; fiddle, Jean Hewson; guitar and Rick West; Bodhran. You won’t be able to sit still for this one.
