For godsake, look at the typos. Too early in the morning.

OK, I have listened to the CDs a few times more, while I have copied the tune titles mostly as given on the cover, a few are not quite right, sets of two named as one and a few that are different altogether (Miss Monaghan being played instead of Devanney’s Goat and the one after was a different one too) and the onbvious half remembered ones (Didtherumdoda? after Seamus Ennis’ story to accompany ‘Anything for John Joe?’) and the just slightly different (Johnny’s gone to the Ceili).

Recommended anyhow, was launched in Spanish Point on 7 march, will see another launch in Galway on April 18, will also become available on iTunes, as was said at the launch.

Agenda at play??

Got this as late Christmas present. Nice stuff but I was quite struck by the fact that there is no recording with accordions!!

Plenty of fiddle and I think 7-8 tracks of concertina..

There are some bloody good box players down in Miltown each summer - the box recital has great players & music and is usually packed with punters. So why no accordion? Do I detect an agenda….. if so, that’s ridiculous!
