Cathal Hayden with Arty McGlynn, Nollaig Ni Chathasaigh and Johnny "Ringo" McDonagh. Brilliant, but a bit of a pity that there are not more banjo tunes on it.
Handed Down; The Kilavell Fancy misnamed?
About track 10, which is labeled on the CD "The Kilavell Fancy/Coleman’s Cross"; the second tune in the set matches the tune that is called the Killavel Fancy on Willie Clancy’s ‘Minstrel From Clare’, the tune that I learned as Eilish Brogan/Killavel Fancy, and the Killavel Fancy posted here. So I really think maybe the tune names are reversed, but the first tune doesn’t match the Coleman’s Cross that is posted here at thesession. Can anyone confirm that the first tune is really Coleman’s Cross?
No, the first tune is the Turnpike Gate https://thesession.org/tunes/3147. The fact that this tune also goes by the name "Killanan Fancy" might explain the confusion with the names.
The Gan Ainm tunes are:
Track 3: The Boys Of Portaferry https://thesession.org/tunes/1436
Track 6: The Fair-haired Lass https://thesession.org/tunes/1231
Track 11: The Curlew https://thesession.org/tunes/174
There aren’t any Gan Ainm tunes on tracks 8 and 11, so I don’t know why they are listed here.
I’m about to post the 2 Liz Carroll tunes, neither of which are here. All the best, "kenny".

Thanks again Kenny

Whoever made the notes for this recording put it down as "The Banks", which it isn’t.
