Today’s offering is “Cavan Pothole” by Sharon Shannon. Sharon is best known for her work with The Waterboys.

Now the accordian is not my favorite instrument, but in Sharon’s hands it becomes a joyful force. Nowhere is this better demonstrated than this infectious piece. I first heard it years ago on a CBC Radio program called “Definitely Not The Opera”. The show got its name because, while it was playing on AM, the FM band was running operas.

It comes from an album called “Common Ground” that is still available.

Give it a listen and, as always, be kind to my bandwidth and download if you would like to listen to it again.
