Pick It Up

Twenty comments

This is another good fine recording of the Banjo, but I didn’t posted it because there are many nameless tunes in it.

Enda Scahill is from Galway and occasionally plays in the Galway city. I got this CD directly from his hand around two years ago during my first trip in Ireland.

The guests musicians are also nice. They are Fergal Scahill (guitar), Brian McGrath (piano), Brendan Browne (box), Jesse Smith (fiddle), Anthony McGrath (guitar), and Damien Quinn (percussion). Some are regular session players in the Galway city, and so you will get to know them when you are hanging around there.

Brian McGrath is also a fine banjo player, but unfortunately we cannot listen to banjo duets in this album.

I think this is one of the best banjo albums i’ve heard if not the best. Brillinat stuff

Sorry…….brilliant stuff

i know i posted this cd but i was listening to it today for the first time in ages-without a doubt it must be the best banjo cd i have. I think i will struggle to find better than this. He plays fast but i enjoy this more than any of Gerry o Connor or his wannabe’s like Dessie Kelleher.

anyone got the first tune on track 3?


Kerry Fling

Kerry Fling on the Album is actually Primrose Lass, not the Kerry Fling as shown here

Re: Pick It Up

First reel on track #3 has been recorded by "De Dannan", but I don’t think they had a name for it.
