Gerry Creen has been a stalwart of the Belfast folk scene long before his first album 'A Rose By Any Other Name' graced the Irish airwaves in 1986. Yet over 30 years later his voice and songwriting has not diminished but like a good barrel of a certain Antrim whiskey his music has enhanced with age. His latest release 'My Shoes' is a lesson to all young singer/songwriters in how to construct a great folk song. Recorded in Belfast under the guiding hands of Rod McVey, Gerry has put together a fabulous collection of songs with a host of top musicians adding substance to recording that picks melodies straight from the heart.
