Boys of the Lough member Dave Richardson is the man who composed two tunes which are very commonly played in sessions nowadays.
I wonder how many people who play Calliope House and MacArthur Road realise he's the composer of those tunes?
Dave Richardson is a native of Northumberland in the U.K. and joined Boys of the Lough in 1973. He plays concertina and mandolin.
Calliope House was featured in the Lord of the Dance and on a television episode of “Sex and the City,” and has sold several million copies.
