Eight comments

Liz Carroll’s

This is the 2nd "Liz Carroll" reel recorded by Cathal Hayden. I’m not sure she ever recorded it herself - if anyone recognises it, and it has a name, please let me know. transcribed several years ago by Ged Palmer, I have "tweaked" his transcripton slightly. See also comments for the 1st of the pair, which was identified as a "Finbarr Dwyer" composition.

The Brocca Reel

I believe this is the 2nd tune off the 1st track of "A Friend Indeed," named the Brocca Reel after her father’s home in Ireland. A great set, indeed :-)

Well done…

Thanks, Charlene - the "Brocca" it is. Named after Liz’s father’s home in Co.Offaly, according to sleeve notes.
