Tír na nÓg was an Irish band of the early 1970s, consisting of Leo O'Kelly and Sonny Condell. Their music mainly consisted of their own compositions, based on strong Celtic roots and typically featuring intricate acoustic guitar playing and close harmony singing. They toured the folk clubs of England; played live on John Peel's radio show; toured internationally as a support act for several rock bands.

Tír na nÓg made three albums between 1971 and 1974. The first was called "Tír na nÓg" and was produced by Bill Leader. It achieved Melody Maker Album of The Month on its release in 1971. It featured mainly their own songs, strongly rooted in the Celtic tradition, but also influenced by eastern music. Condell and O'Kelly played acoustic guitars and occasional bongos and other percussion instruments. Their guitar work was intricate and complex, leading to their being compared to bands such as The Incredible String Band and Pentangle. However, their style was quite distinctive. Often, they would use different open tunings for their two guitars.

Leo O'Kelly Dulcimer - Guitar, Bass, Vocals, Violin, Tin Whistle
Sonny Condell Guitar - Vocals, Moroccan Drum, Tabla, Jew's-Harp, Percussion
Barry Dransfield - Fiddle

What a nice surprise, I have been reading all about the meaning of their band name, and saw the album mentioned, but never thought to look for it. Excellent!
