Special guest: Mr. Dermott o'Connor

Un po' di storia del leader: Mr. Dermott o'Connor, irlandese purosangue, nel 1973 fonda a Dublino gli SPUD, prima band Folk Rock Irlandese. La POLYDOR li mette sotto contratto ed oltre a registrare fanno alcune tournè in Regno Unito ed in Scandinavia. Dermott nel '78 si trasferisce a Londra da dove partono i nuovi progetti "THE PERMANENT CURE" e la "WES MC.GHEE BAND". Con quest'ultima band lavora intensamente producendo 5 album e facendo tournè in tutta Europa. Divengono una vera Cult Tex-mex band e sbarcano negli USA dove lavorano in tournè e registrano un doppio album dal vivo ad Austin in Texas. Nel '93 Dermott si trasferisce in Germania e coi vecchi compagni della "The permanent Cure" lavora in svariate tournè e pubblica 4 CD. Nel 2000 forma la band "THE MURPHY'S LAWYERS" con un violinista inglese ed un bassista tedesco e collabora con loro fino al 2008 quando si trasferisce in Italia. Ora ha avviato il nuovo progetto che coinvolge il polistrumentista Paolo Manfrin al basso cornamusa e flauti, Denis Feletto al pianoforte e Danilo Gramaccia alla batteria.
