Hi gang!

Your old pal WaterDigsTunes just realized that 70s Irish proggers Peggy's Leg aren't in PA.  Guitarist Jimi Slevin seems to have made the cut, so why not his band? Their sound leans towards the folk-prog side of things, favouring acoustic textures, clear vocals and occasional wah guitar. Their sole album, 1973's Grinilla, was one of those rarities that most people thought never actually existed until it was reissued in 2001. Here's some samples:

Good one. I'll mention it to the Prog Folk team.

Nice stuff indeed, good find Walter. Let's see what the PF team says about this suggestion, IMO Greg is right.
