The Star Of Munster Trio

Julia Clifford - fiddle
John Clifford - piano-accordion
Billy Clifford - flute
Volume 2 in the "Topic" label’s series "The Music Of Sliabh Luachra". This was apparently recorded around 1 solitary microphone in Lucy Farr’s house, so it’s a pretty "low-tech" recording. Only 1 set of polkas [ Track 4 ], and no slides, so presumably this is a recording of the reels, jigs, hornpipes and airs played in Sliabh Luachra .
Apologies to "ceolachan" for taking so long to post this after promising to do so. Thanks for reminding me - I’ll post Vol.3 tomorrow.

Tune Names…

‘Lucy’s’ is more commonly known as ‘The Crooked Road to Dublin’, ‘John Mahinney’s no. 1’ is more commonly known as ‘Old Joe’s’, and the Gan Ainm following it is ‘The Leitrim Fancy’.

Another Gan Ainm…

And the Gan Ainm on Track 11 is ‘The Chicago Reel’.

The Palatine’s Daughter

In the last couple of days I’ve become smitten with this tune, The Palatine’s Daughter. Forgive my ignorance, but is this a set piece; or a slow polka? I can’t quite place it.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks, Fran

Palatine

I’m not sure, and will check on it, but I think "The Palatine’s Daughter" was a song - ie, with lyrics - set to the melody of the set-dance "The Garden Of Daisies". There was a booklet accompanying the "Sliabh Luachra" set of recordings, and I have it somewhere. It had information on the players and also the tunes on the recordings. I’ll get back to you.
