Little John Nee And The Caledonia Highly Strung Orchestra ‎– Songs From The Lough Swilly Delta

Oldtone Records ‎– OLP001
CD, Album


This album of songs from the theatre shows of Little John Nee were recorded at Attica Studios with financial assistance from funders on Fundit and Donegal Arts Office. 'Schrodinger Scat' was written for a radio play - 'Wee Black Bees' - commissioned by RTÉ Drama on One.

We would like to thank Traolach O'Fhionnáin and the Donegal Arts Office for their belief in and support for this project, as well as all staff at the Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, and a special thank you to An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny.

This album was funded primarily through 'Fundit', where every small pledge counted toward the realisation of 'Songs from the Lough Swilly Delta'. We are grateful and hope you all enjoy it; it mightn't be here only for you.
