Alan Kelly's CD 'Out of the Blue' on the Kells label has become a fast
favorite of mine. Alan plays a dry-tuned piano accordion.
The first time I heard it I thought it was a button accordion. He ornaments
the tunes much like a fiddle, flute or pipes player would...very tight rolls
and crans. He plays some nice tune variations too.
The line up includes musicians Stephen Cooney, Jimmy Higgins, Donogh
Hennessy, Kevin Hough, Sean Smyth, Carl Hession, John Kelly, Joe Bernie.
Quoting Mairtin O'Connor, "He plays the piano a accordion with great heart
and wonderful sensitivity."
