That album (Barking Mad) was a gem. Some great songs and some incredibly fleet-footed tune-playing, and of course Gerry O'Connor's brilliant tenor banjo. We saw them twice, once in Bude and once just up the road in Kilkhampton, in that early manifestation. Years later we saw Gino again in Exeter, with Ron Kavana, Brian O'Neill and the piper Tomas Lynch. We really had thought it might be the start of a new supergroup but nothing came of that lineup. Ron was our very favourite in those days and we saw him a number of times in the early-mid-90s.
