reviews Something to Show by Mick Ryan & Pete Harris

An excellent collection of traditional or new traditionally?based songs with the powerful singing of Mick Ryan and the harmonies and acoompaniments of Pete Harris; many of which will have you singing along. Half of the songs are originals by Mick Ryan, the strongest being `King Kaley a dark, mystical ballad contrasting with his lighter composition `Work, Work, Whens It Gonna Stop There are first?class harmonies and instrumental work on the disturbing `Eighteenth of June and the Copper Familys `Two Brethren; while there is fine unaccompanied singing on `Faithless Sally Brown. This is a worthy addition to the collection of anyone who likes their traditional music neat or with a rich instrumental backing.
