New CD from the danes residing in Galway.

The CD features old-style banjo and melodeon backed by Piano (Malene D. Beck), Bones (Yirdy Machar), Double Bass (Steffan S. Sørensen), Tambourine (Niall McQuaid) and Bodhran (Johnny ‘Ringo’ McDonagh. The sound and feeling to the music reminds me of the old recordings from the 20’s, 30’s and 40’s. Full steam ahead, and no holding back.

An absolutely cracking album. This is what it’s all about, folks !

If you like melodeon in the old Kimmel style this is the record for you. It blows the others out of the water.

Track 6 second tune is Cuilcagh Mountains

Any ideas where I could get hold of this?

Re: In Ireland

The name given by the composer of the tune called McHugh’s in the cd is Sean McCusker’s Farewell. Three parts full range jig in Dorian mode, uncommon to see in trad sessions. Very nice tune!!
