‘TOBARTAOSCAN’ singing cd

This cd was recorded in the first half of 2009 and is just now becoming available. ‘Tobar’ means a well in Irish and ‘taoscan’ means a draught of water. Tobartaoscan is close to where Philip grew up, on the outskirts of Ennis in County Clare. It was then farmland, now heavily urbanised, a theme which inspired the song. The song was composed at the turn of the millennium and won the newly-composed song contest at the Humours of Tulla festival in 2000. The cd contains 15 songs, some composed by the singer, a few he has adapted and the rest are personal favourites.
Available through this web-site at € 14. There is no postage charge for Ireland. Postage outside Ireland is € 1.50
