The Ewe with the Crooked Horn is the new CD (2010) of Irish Traditional music by Colm Gannon, Jesse Smith and John Blake featuring accordion, fiddle and flute with guitar and piano accompaniment.

Colm Gannon (accordion) and Jesse Smith (fiddle) began playing music together in their teenage years. In 1998 Jesse and Colm moved to Ennis, Co. Clare where they met John Blake (flute, guitar, and piano). They have been playing music together and also in various combinations of groups and bands since then and The Ewe with the Crooked Horn is their first collaborative recording.

CD Quotes:

"The atmosphere is rich, the pace is special with a feeling of musicians who are beautifully connected with each others playing."

- Custy's Music Shop, Ennis

"The beauty of the album is the immersion of musicians, instruments and tunes to produce music that just gets better on each listening."

Aidan Crossey-Pay The Reckoning: Reviews

"The melody constantly demands your attention, and its raw intensity can be quite overpowering.."

Alex Monaghan-Irish Music Magazine


"The Ewe with the Crooked Horn" is a diasporic diamond, burnished by the exceptional skill and care of three master musicians who should inspire a new "Next Generation" of promising young trad players in and out of Ireland."

Earle Hitchner-The Irish Echo


We are very excited to be playing in Jesse's hometown of Baltimore. This promises to be a great night of music and craic. Hope you can make it and we look forward to seeing you there.
