The Music of Ed Reavy

A nice album released in 1991 and recorded and produced by Mick Moloney.Reavy himself ,from older recordings, plays tracks 7,8,9,18,19,and 20.I think track 20 is the only non-Reavy set of tunes here.
Musicians include;
Liz Carroll,Billy McComiskey,Maeve Donnelly,Mick Moloney,Armin Barnett,Brendan Mulvihill,Maureen Fitzpatrick,Eugene O`Donnell,Tim Britton,Paddy Cronin,Larry McCullough,Louis Quinn,and Martin Mulvihill.
One tune is repeated .

John Roarty
My name is Therese. I grew up in Drexel Hill, Pa. My Grandfather was John P. Roarty. I believe he was a great influence in "fiddling". As a matter of fact, my aunt told me that was his nickname, The Fidd;er. He had an orchestra by the name of Pride of Killarney Dance Orchestra, in which my mother, Agnes, was the pianist. My Grandfather also owned a tap room on Market St. by the same name of the Orchestra, although to regulars it was called "The Pride". In this new age of computers, I looked up my Grandfather’s name and read what an influence he was on Revy and that a "reel" was done in his honor. I am so sorry that I did not have a chance to speak with Mr. Reavy, considering he was so close to my home town. But, thank you Mr. Reavy, thank you for honoring my Grandfather who I never go to know because of his sudden death in the 1940’s If you knew my Grandfather or any stories or legends, please let me know. Thx, The Fiddlersgranddaughter
