"This track begins with "Up in the Garret," an extremely rare and haunted
slip jig unearthed from the
17th century Goodman manuscript. The old houses in Ireland frequently had an
extra bed in a loft
or garret above the main room reserved for visitors. The second tune is much
more common, as old,
& equally intriguing to me every time I play it. The gist of the cut is
about coming home the hard way and ultimately accepting the fact that things
- quite naturally - have changed." - John Williams
John Williams has been recognized as one of the great box players of the current generation, proven by his five All-Ireland titles (he's the first American-born competitor to win first place in the Senior Concertina category). In addition to his solo work and collaborations with dozens of artists, he was also a founding member of the band Solas.
