The 3rd Irish Folk Festival

Recorded in 1976 (Intercord Double LP)

A rare recording of Andy Irvine with De Dannan, in which he was briefly a member.

Wrong Dinny O’Brien here

The tune after Martinmas Time on this album was Dinny O’Brien’s Hornpipe ; the Dinny O’Brien’s here on this record listing is incorrectly linked to the Dinny O’Brien reel.

Why not post it yourself?

Slainte & Kenny, thanks for the tips

Thanks for the tips guys on how to make my comments more constructive, although I thought Kenny’s was more constructive than Slainte’s. Sorry about not including the links. I had just found the name of the tune after playing it for years without a name. It is difficult to search for it here if you cannot write out the ABC’s to search against. I finally found the old vinyl record sleeve !!!!
Thanks,
Kevin

You’re welcome, Kevin, - but you don’t have to do it with "abcs". What you could do is do a "search" on either "Dinny" or "O’Brien" , under "hornpipes " as the tune type, and if it’s here, the link will show up. We do try to help here - cheers!

Sorry Kevin for a bit unfriendly comment. Obviously, many of Paddy Fahy tunes suffer the same problem on this site.

Who does what…..

The list of performers hasn’t been posted yet - I’ll do that soon, but it includes Jackie Daly in partnership with Seamus Creagh whom sadly it seems that we lost yesterday. A huge loss to traditional Irish music - a great musician, a great wit, and a gentleman. I do remember when Seamus introduced a set here he said something along the lines of "If you are going to clap along, please do so in time !".

Just noticed that this double LP can be downloaded through iTunes. There’s some great playing on it from all involved.
