I attended a Makem (yeah) in Deer Lake, NF with some buddies from a construction job back in the 80's. The foreman said, "Dat b'y 'as a t'roat on'n like a gannet sir!" Indeed. When your chest reverberates with the sound from lungs like mine did in row four, you are in the presence of an AMAZING voice.
Seen him many times. Helped get a concert performed here on one of his tours as he and his agent didn't understand the largest percantage (about 35%) of our province's population is of Irish decent (yeah). And, a large portion of the French population (about 30% of the total) share the same musical heritage because of the Celt "influence" in northern France.
