Track 8b

I’m afraid I haven’t heard this recording, so I won’t vouch for the second tune in track 8 being the same as the "Brendan McMahon’s" I just posted (tune 1981).

Skylark players include: Len Graham on vocals; Garry O’Briain on guitar, mandocello and keyboards; Gerry O’Connor on fiddle and viola. Other players include Eithne Ni Uallachain on flute and whistle; Eilish O’Connor on fiddle and Mairtin O’Connor on accordian. A late 80’s recording.

The box player on this record is Andrew Mac Namara, not Mairtin O Connor.

The original LP of 1987 is on the Claddagh Records label, number CC46.

Corrections…

I’ve edited a few typos in the original submission.

Len Graham - vocals and bodhran
Gerry O’Connor - fiddle
Andrew MacNamara - accordion
Garry O’Briain - mandola

Ps..

The middle tune link goes to a different "Brendan McMahon’s" reel.
