Hi! I came across this when I was googling Maeve's name. I am sorry to hear of Butch and Maeve both passing. Like many others on this thread, it was my first exposure to Irish music. But just to throw a twist in here, I heard them at Ryan's Pub in New Orleans back in the 80's. I'll never forget that night. I was visiting my best friend who is an Irish nun and she asked if I would like to go hear some Irish music that night. I kinda thought that was strange because at that time I didn't connect New Orleans with Irish music! I totally enjoyed their music.
