CD 'Whistle Man'

CDNew CD by Olaf Sickmann
Together with my ex-bandmate Claus Steinort I had the pleasure to be part of the CD project "Whistle Man" by Tin Whistle player and guitarist Olaf Sickman. Tradconnect writes: "There is a rich quality to Olaf’s music with new compositions that really deserve a little bit more airplay. He has in his corner the outstanding talents of Rolf Wagels, bringing some marvelously crisp and clear accompaniment to 15 self-penned tracks." All info and sound can be found here.
