Rough Guide to Irish Music

I picked this up in the local library - there’s some nice stuff on it by Martin Hayes, Patrick Street etc. There’s plenty of room for debate about it being any sort of guide to Irish music, but anyway………..

Very rough guide

2. Tommy Peoples/Windmill/Fintan McManus’s - Altan
3. Coinleach Ghlas An Fromhair - Clannad
4. On Horseback - Ivers, Eileen
5. Season Of Mists - Crawford, Kevin
6. Lakes Of Pontchartrain - Deanta
7. White Petticoat/Kerry Jig/Katy Is Waiting - Patrick Street
8. Terry Cuz Teahans Polka/Murphy’s Polka/O’Sullivan’s Polka - Sliabh Notes
9. Molly And Johnny - Dervish
10. Humours Of Lissadell/Music In The Glen/Johnson’s - Derance, Joe
11. Boys Of Malin/Gravel Walks - Tourish, Ciaran & Dermot McLaughlin

This is the 1st edition of ‘The Rough Guide to Irish Music’ so I suppose I’d better post the track-listing of the 2nd!
