Great set of tunes. I got this on tape from a friend about 5 years ago and never really knew much about the musicians or the recording until the other day when I searched the session web site for Turas. Of course, while the recording had not been submitted before, there is references to the group so check out these previous discussions/comments
or simply do a search from the front page yourself.
I really like these tunes and hope you will too.
Turas - Track 3
Some very good playing on this. 2 of the track 3 titles are wrong. “Dermot Byrne’s” is “Bob McQuillan’s” by Aly Bain, and “Michael’s” is “The Trip To Nenagh” or “An Moinfheir”[ “The Meadow” ] by fiddler Sean Ryan.
Thanks Kenny. Have made the changes.
Sort of remeber them. They got people talking alot at the time. They were way ahead of their time and the fact they were so young got a lot of interest in them. Surprised they didnt do more than one recording though!
To clarify/avoid confusion
The “Liz Carroll’s” listed on track 1 is in fact called “Wissahickon Drive” (https://thesession.org/tunes/1769). When you click on the link in the track listing, it brings you to another tune written by Liz Carroll.
Further tune name clarifications
Re track 1 (and a great track it is);
Paddy Gavin’s (The Bond reel):
This setting of the High Reel is also known as the beehive and is further discussed and found here:
Theirs sounds like a Dmajor setting of Sally Gardens and is supremely tasty. I’ll post the recipe at my first convenience!)
The Bond HOUSE (sorry for the gaffe), and I meant no disrespect to the Beehive via the lower case b - bad typist me.
Wrong link in “iTunes”….
The “iTunes” link above, top right, is to a completely different recording.
