Notes

Sleevenotes:
THE ABBEY TAVERN
Like a giant blue whale, the great promontory of Howth Head basks at the entrance to Dublin Bay. In the curl of its tail, just a few miles from Dublin, there nestles a little fishing village, watched by the island called Ireland's Eye. This is the village of Howth. Beside the ancient ruins of its abbey stands the Abbey Tavern. Inside-an Irish welcome as warm as a friendly handshake, a tasty supper… a sup to drink…and music and singing with the fragrance of peat about it and the taste of truth in it.

If you know the Irish, the warmth of the welcome, the fine food and drink, are probably just as you expected. The singing may surprise you. In a simple setting a handful of singers make the rafters ring with ballads grave and ballads gay, verses sly and verses simple, songs quiet and songs stirring. It makes a memorable evening.
