Leitrim’s Hidden Treasures
One of the best CDs of traditional Irish music I’ve ever come across. 6 members of the McNamara family from Co. Leitrim play a large selection [17 tracks!] of tunes from their local area. 2 sets of pipes, 2 flutes, fiddle and concertina, playing in various combinations, with occasional backing on piano or guitar. Photos and great notes in a 20 page booklet accompany the CD. Anyone looking for new material should own this recording.
I’ve got this one in my Cd walkman right now!
The jig Tandragee is also known as Boys of Tandragee and Linnanes
There was already a somewhat busy ABC of it in the tune data base.
Track four lists Green Fields of America as the second tune in the set. However, if you’re looking for a correct ABC of it, the tune is also known as Miss Brady -
T: Miss Brady

The hornpipe on this album called Logier’s can be found at
under the name Road to the River.

Re: Leitrim’s Hidden Treasure
I had this CD and it has unfortunately disappeared somewhere. I am keen to get the notes to the last tune on the CD entitled Miss Gunnings and entirely different to the early Miss Gunnings rant.
Could anyone oblige with the ABC ?
