On track 4 they have a very interesting version of "The Maid Behind the Bar" (or is it actually "The Green Maintain"?). If I have time I’ll try to transcribe it and post it here.

I suspect that’s the version myself and Will have transcribed from the playing of "Moving Cloud" and the Gort session recording. Both feature Kevin Crawford, I believe. Have a look: https://thesession.org/tunes/166/comments

You should look at the travelers project that Mickey has put together. Insightful stuff.

I was recently given this album by as a gift, I am incredibly impressed and honoured to receive this.
Thank you Mickey, it would be a joy to see you Brid and Niamh back here in the very near future. And thank you Mickey for the cd.

A hidden treasure

I just had to post that this CD is really just about perfect. It took a couple-three listens all the way through to truly appreciate what is going on here because it comes on a little bit quietly … but it’s just the most lovely music, lovingly rendered by some truly brilliant musicians. Settings are great, the fiddling is dead classy, and the style throughout is just through-the-roof spectacular. Charlie Lennon’s Emigrant Suite is such a treat, as is the just-a-bit-wry treatment of Handel’s March from "Scipio," the ceili band set is just grand, and then there’s Mickey’s live Col. Fraser’s/Bucks of Oranmore set — pretty much the sine qua non in this piper’s book. Oh, and Niamh Dunne’s singing - sigh. The Dunnes and their friends aren’t afraid to show their love for the music, which to me makes it twice as cool. If you can find a copy of this CD, I think you’ll find it well worth the effort.
