Cran’s second album

This is Cran’s second album.
Ronan Browne joined to the band from this recording.
I really like this and "Farewell to Nigg" is too good.

Not Hardiman

The very last tune is not Hardiman the Fiddler. I believe it’s Fraher’s.

Staimpi and The Wren

I just noticed that the tune The Wren, http://www.thesession.org/tunes/2828, is in the middle of the song, Staimpi. Funny coincidence that I bought this album and Lawrence Nugent’s Two for Two on the same day and found two versions of this same tune (Nugent labels it a Dans En Dro) which I, like many of the comment writers for The Wren, have heard Wild Asparagus play and have never heard or seen elsewhere.

Track 6, 3 tunes?

It sounds to me like there are 3 tunes in track 6. The first is Brendan Tonra’s and the last is Banks of Lough Gowna, as listed in the track listings. But it sounds like there’s a tune in between. Anyone with better tune identifying ears than me have any idea? Is it a different tune? Is it just Banks in a different key? Help.
