Finnegan's Wake Irish Pub was established in 2005 on Fifth Avenue in Tallahassee, Florida, a sister city to Sligo, Ireland. For nearly eight years, Finn's has featured The Ned Devines hosting traditional Irish sessions and the band's famous "second Sunday" performances. This album features a selection of live-recorded tracks from the current Neds lineup at Finn's; a spirited blend of their own vibrant traditional Irish music, song, and dance, and a special guest appearance from a dear friend of the Neds, John Sullivan. Please enjoy this collection of some of the Neds' favorite tunes and songs performed at one of their favorite venues. Sláinte!
