Full Tilt



Manus dropped this new recording into us on 16th December,2020 and when I played it, the first image that came to mind was him attending to a pungent,septic, in-growing toe nail in his surgery in Scariff and a wry smile appearing on his face with the memory of his gifted playing with his new musical iteration, Full Tilt (Alan Small,Piano Accordion,Gemma Donald,fiddle and piano,Brian Nicholson,guitar and vocals).

  Like Jonathan Livingston Seagull when he spread his wings and gave himself fully and unconditionally to the wind on his maiden flight - a true master in his natural environment.

  Well done, Manus!
