Michael Sands hails from Newry, Co Down and has been involved in folk and traditional music his whole life. He now resides in Ballycastle, Co Antrim and is a regular on the local traditional music scene as both teacher and player. He has also released three books - a children’s novel ‘Nut Hollow, the Knife and Nefairious’, and two collections of poetry – ‘Away with Words’ and ‘A Moment’s Notice’. This latest book is set in a world he knows well and is an honest look at traditional music, her musicians and the sheer joy, fun and talent therein.
