The initial lineup had Paddy Glackin on fiddle as well as Tony Mac Mahon on accordion. The band turned professional in November of 1975, with Tommy Peoples replacing Glackin on fiddle, to be replaced in turn by Kevin Burke in May of 1976.

Their eponymous first album from 1975 (re-released as 1975: The First Album) established their critical renown. Their second, Old Hag You Have Killed Me, from 1976, only increased their audience. This was followed by Out Of The Wind Into The Sun. That was to be their last studio release, however, and it was followed by a live album recorded in Paris, Afterhours. In 1994 some previously unreleased concerts from 1976 & 1978 were released as Live in Concert. After the band’s dissolution, the various members joined such bands as Nightnoise, Moving Hearts, The Chieftains, Patrick Street and Touchstone. « hide
