Lots of strings!

If you like strings, this is for you. "The Bowhouse Quintet" are/were Liam Lewis & Tola Custy on fiddles, Jesse Smith on viola, Clare O’Donoghue on cello, and Paul O’Driscoll on double bass. The recording was made live in Ennis and released in 1999, strangely on the Glasgow Lochshore KRL label, rather than an Irish label.
The last recording I posted was "Muintir Lewis", which included a young Liam, and here he is again, 21 years later!

I think there are two tunes here. Any thoughts on the second? Is it a Paddy Fahy?

2 x Fahy

I don’t have the CD sleeve notes anymore but there are definitely 2 reels there, and I’m fairly certain that both are compositions by Paddy Fahy.
