The Bells of Dublin
The Chieftains’ Christmas CD was recorded in 1991. Again there are guest singers from the pop scene (Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne, Marianne Faithfull et al.). Other guests include bell-ringers, two superb choirs, Brendan Begley on accordeon and Kathryn Tickell on northumbrian pipes.
Not many tunes here but still recognizably Chieftains. Not bad for the festive season.
The Dingle Set
Wow, I’ve started listening this and I can’t help but feel happy when I hear it. Does anybody know what tunes their playing on that?…
What tunes are played for the dance duet? The two played for track 18
to clarify (it sent itself in before I’d finished my sentence) track 18 is Bafferton village and Walsh’s (the one which starts out with the northumbrian pipes) so what then is the mislabeled track 19? I really love the second tune, which reminds me of Pibddawns Owen Huw, a welsh hornpipe. Anyone know?
Tunes played on track 19
