The Wild Irishman

After trying some recent albums where the playing is rushed, this album shows why Sean Mcguire’s playing is so highly regarded.

Tk. 6: The second tune in this set is not the jig "Rose Wood". It is called "Health to the Ladies".

Tk. 10: I don’t know whether it is just a problem on my album or whether it is a widespread problem but Jenny’s Welcome to Charlie is not on track 10. Instead, it play the Maids of Tulla (the exact same tune earlier on the album) and the exact same version. Really gutted at that because I was hoping to hear Sean’s version of this tank of a tune!

Tk. 11: The Wild Irishman is the tune also known as "The Irish Girl" and not the one which the track listing links to.

Great stuff. I love his playing
