Just got a beautiful new album dropped into the shop in the last few days…“Hand me Down the Moon” is the debut solo album from Cork based folk singer songwriter Eoin Jordan. A mix of self-penned and traditional material it features some of the finest musicians in the Cork area, including Declan Sinnott, David Murphy, Ilse de Ziah, Anthony Ruby, Chris McCarthy, and Gráinne Gormley. The album was recorded over the past two years in De Bunker Studio, East Cork with Dave O’Connell at the controls.
A former member of The Ceili Allstars, The Diviners, and David Hope & the Henchmen, this is his first foray into the world of the solo artist. He is equally at home playing contemporary and traditional music. Influences include Folk & Traditional music, Blues, Rock and Jazz. He has performed and shared a stage with acts including John Spillane, Steve Cooney, Mary Coughlan and Ultan Conlon, as well as recording with many different acts including Hank Wedel, David Hope, Street Corner Messiahs and John Leo Carter.
“I’m really enjoying Eoin Jordan’s progress into a really good singer-songwriter. I look forward to working with him as he unfolds his story.” Declan Sinnott

A major sidetrack im off on here now….next month is 3 years since the fire and we are nearly in To(u) gher the same length of time we were back in Douglas village shopping centre…3 years…happy out here, hopefully upheaval is hiding from us for a while….anyways …this isn’t going to be vaguely interesting to nearly anyone who reads this id say, but sher you might know someone who might be interested and maybe you could let them know….let em know what Ray ffs…it was a different world before fire and covid and we were in a decent footfall area so we had to stock products that basically we can’t give away out in Togher…we are more or less solely a record shop now, the way we want it to be honest….but from our 2019 days we have about 5 or 6 k worth of dvds/blurays…mainly dvds….some shrink wrapped, some not 50/50…we have slashed them to half price and more …up to 80 per cent in a lot of cases and we have thrown them up on the site ( well we are about 50 per cent of the way to getting them on the site) heres a link to them…if you know anyone who would be interested you might share the link or let them know please…
I’ll plug it again when we have them all on the site and again and again!!!
