  • Re: All Night Up All Day

    Also, the very first tune up there is labeled "Joe Cassidy's" on the album. Ed learned the tune from a private recording of Seamus Gibson (who wrote the tune) in which he identifies it as such. At some point the title morphed into "George Peoples'" which... more…

  • Re: George Peoples’

    I have a private recording of Seamus Gibson himself playing this tune and he calls it "Joe Cassidy's" which is an entirely different tune on this site. more…

  • Re: All Night Up All Day

    The Joe Cassidy's (reel), Music at the Gate (fling), Kinnycally Klansmen (jig), Miss Cunningham's (strathspey) and Sean McGlynn's (waltz) recorded by Ed are not actually notated on thesession.org as indicated (not yet, anyway) 🙂 more…

  • Re: The Irish Tradition

    I recently had the good fortune of acquiring the album this tune came from. Fiddle players: the funny double quarter note "b's" are executed simply as two successive rolls, NOT the signature stutter rolls Mulvihill is known for. In fact, it's interesting,... more…

  • Re: The Hurricane

    Jesse Smith released this (his first recording) on cassette when he was 17. He is accompanied on the piano by his mother, Donna Long, and on guitar by Zan Mcleod. Brendan Mulvihill joins him on the final set of reels. Jesse was under the tutelage of Brend... more…

  • Re: The Journey

    I recently happened upon a reference to a cd release party for a Mulvihill disc and I fell outta my chair. A bit of digging revealed that "The Journey" was released in 2018. Aside from the dance school disc he did in 1999 ("One More Time") I believe this ... more…

  • Re: The Contradiction

    Sean Keane's version from his album "Sean Keane," to my knowledge only ever released on vinyl, is well worth hearing. He undeniably plays notes deliberately out of tune as he blazes away. I can't find any versions of the track anywhere. Perhaps someone mo... more…

  • Re: McCahill’s

    The version I posted above, is sometimes known as "Danny Meehan's," or "The Gowel." I had a feeling some dedicated player would make the connection for us. Thank you Kenny. Here's the link to alternative settings to THAT tune and some nice reference back... more…

  • McCahill’s, X:3

    I was fortunate to have been visited by Liz Carroll a number of years back. She played this tune she called "McCahill's." She recalled hearing it played by Danny Meehan. It is obviously quite different from the tunes posted here. I thought I'd post it any... more…

  • Re: The Garden Of Daisies

    In reference to a sung version of the tune, it is sung on the Ó Riada Sa Gaiety, Ceoltóirí Cualann recording. ‘Sliabh Gael gCua’ isn't listed as the song. Perhaps it's the same melody with different words? If you're fortunate enough to find the a... more…
