Old Flames blends the stories of writer Brian Leyden with music by the multi-instrumentalist Shamie O’Dowd in a warm-hearted look at romance and courtship, house-dances, dowries and matchmaking, schoolday love notes, radio memories, bereavement and retirement. Old Flames will light up fond memories for many of you and maybe even rekindle a romantic fire or two.
