Noel Hill And Tony Linnane

My tape of this has just about worn out; time to get the CD. It’s an absolute classic. Great tunes, great playing, and it’ll put a smile on your face.

Seminal Fiddle and Concertina duet

Tony Linnane plays as sweet a fiddle as you’ll ever hear and the combination with Hill’s concertina is magic. Matt Molloy also guests on this.

This is a really enjoyable disc - the third tune on the first medley is Maudabawn Chapel by Ed Reavy, misidentified as Ryan’s Reel.
