Lovely fiddle recording with a few songs thrown in with some help from Claire Keville, Liam Lewis and Terence O’Reilly

Breda Keville: Hop Down

I just got this album and am totally blown away. It’s about as close as I’ve heard any younger players get to the sound of fiddlers like Bobby Casey and Junior Crehan.


gorgeous music and voice. old style with lovely ornamentation.
trad as it should be

Track #9

Track #9 is a set of two Reavy tunes. The one following the Ceilier is listed on this CD as simply "Reavy’s" but Reavy himself titled it "Brian Quinn’s" after a relative. Great tune, and superbly played by the Keville sisters.
