Bonnie Kate medley

The extract on the web-link provided sounds like its the medley that Carignan played with Yves Verret and Gilles Losier in 1975 at “La veillee des veillees” which consisted of three reels, Bonnie Kate opening the medley and Star of Munster finishing it off.
A gret album not yet posted on TheSession and that should be.
I’ll get to it 😉

Bonnie Kate Medley

Any clue on what the second reel may be called?

Track 2 : Fermoy Lasses

Listening to the samples, I notice that the “Mason’s Apron” medley has Fermoy Lasses in it.
I’ll try to get my hands on a copy and be more acurate on the tune listing.
Take care 😉

Thanks f.pellerin, appreciated…

I made a comeback on this site. My first move is to update the list of tunes on this recording according to f.pellerin comments.
