Signing to Polydor Ireland in 1972 they recorded their first album Carrig River. Released in 1973 Carrig River features some of the finest poems and ballads from the Irish folk tradition spanning four centuries including Follow Me Up to Carlow, She Moved through the Fair while the title track Carrig River and Courtown Fishermen echo the rich folk traditions of their native Wexford. Shades of Mac Murroughs Carrick River has been long held as an acid folk holy grail and is a mellifluous blend of sublime vocal harmonies and subtle instrumentation.
