At the Racket utube set

Re: At the Racket utube set

The first is Kitty Come a Clicking from the Races and the set of reels following the flings are two Josie McDermott tunes: The Trip to Birmingham and Darby’s Farewell to London.

Thanks guys. I guess I’ll have to pick up a copy James Carty’s album to get an audible version of these tunes to learn from. Lovely set.
