Musical Memories - Charlie Lennon

Charlie Lennon: fiddle, piano, organ
Brian Lennon: flute
Mick O’Brien: uilleann pipes, flute

Leitrim-born fiddle and piano player Charlie Lennon recorded in 1993 this collection of his outstanding compositions in the traditional idiom, many of which are now played by Irish traditional musicians everywhere.
A tunebook with all 30 tunes and their story is also available.
It includes full transcriptions of the piano accompaniments for which Charlie is also renowned.


Tracks 3, 6 and 13 have “collective” titles, so I’ve included them in brackets. Some brilliant compositions on this recording, as is evident by the number of them which can regularly be heard in sessions everywhere.
