Coisir (Irish Gaelic word for "party")

Featuring Damaris Woods (banjo, mandolin), her brother Jim Woods (accordion, bodhran), and Gerry Tully (guitar, vocals).

With guests Pat McManus (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, fiddle), Fintan McManus (bouzouki), Liz Doherty (fiddle), Paddy Greenan (bass), Paul McCann (bass).

A solid recording that I picked up when Damaris and Jim did a concert with Liz Doherty and Dinny McLaughlin in Philadelphia last year.

CD is a nice mix of traditional tunes and tunes written (*in quotes and parentheses*) by and/or learned from Claire Mann ("Mrs. Malaprop"), Lamond Gillespie, Micheal O Raghallaigh, Garry Shannon, Kevin Burke, Fintan McManus ("Bouzouki Players Nightmare"), Brian Byrne ("Brian Byrne’s), Carmel O’Dea ("Nice and Easy"), Ryan MacNeil ("O’Keeffes of Dublin"), Tim O’Leary ("Strathspey Gan Ainm"), Kevin Crawford, and Pat McManus ("Hole in Kettle", "Belle Aisle").

A Few Corrections

On Track 3, there is a Strathspey Gan Ainm that is played before Kevin Burke’s.

On Track 11, there is a Mazurka Gan Ainm played before The Long Drop.
