High hills of largy

Hi Niall, thanks for putting this recording on The Session.
Could I just point out that there’s only one traditional tune on the CD, The Mossy Banks, all other tunes are Sean’s. Catherine Nugent/McLaughlin sings Loch Erne’s Shore, one of Sean’s favourite traditional local songs.
There’s also a book of Sean’s tunes, with photographs and biography, available from the same sources (tunes transcribed by myself)
