In Praise of Lissycasey

This recording is by some well known, and some lesser known, musicians all of whom either come from, or have some connections with, Lissycasey, a village on the road from Ennis to Kilrush.
The CD was made by and for the Lissycasey GAA, and the proceeds from its sale will go towards the building of new sports facilities in the town.
The recording is a fascinating sampler of music from the rural heartland of Co. Clare.
I bought it in Custy’s Music Shop in Ennis a couple of years ago (€ 20) but because it isn’t one of the usual commercial recordings, there may not be many copies left ! Custys should be able to advise as to its availability.
For those interested, the artist/instrument list is as follows:
Concertina:
Noel Hill, Brid Hill, Dympna O’Sullivan, Jack Talty, Padraig Rynne, Claire Doohan, Louise Hanrahan, Gerald Haugh.
Fiddle:
Orla Coughlin, Eileen Considine, Karen Rynne, Carmel Doohan, Joan Hanrahan, Colm Doohan.
Accordion:
Mairead McNamara, Tom Rynne, Christy Doohan, Paddy Stacpoole, Caroline Doohan, John Hanrahan, Brian Doohan.
Banjo:
Anne Hayes.
Flute:
Lorraine Hanrahan
Bazouki:
Pat Costello.

murfbox … By adding the artists’ names in brackets beside the tunes in the listing you make it impossible for the tune to be picked up by Jeremy’s database and matched against the tune database. Anything in brackets after a tune name messes up this simple, but elegant, system. If you need to add further info other than tune names, you can always do so in the comments section, as indeed you’ve done above.

OK. Sorry about that, and thanks, Aidan.
This was my first posting of a recording !

Very interesting. Pleased to find a familiar name, Padraig Rynne.
