Thread Name: Emmet Spiceland - 1960's Irish group
Subject: Folklore: Emmet Spiceland
Came across a rare old tape of an Irish group from the 60`s called Emmet Spiceland which I think was the first group Donal Lunny ever played with. This was long before he ever took up the bouzouki.

The group consisted of Donal Lunny and Brian Byrne and another brother of Brian`s. Brian had a fantastic voice and I was wondering if there are any other tapes or recordings of this group available. I am particularly interested in a beautiful recording they made called "Mary of Dungloe"

Would really appreciate any help on this.
