These are all tunes featuring mainly the fiddle by Matt Cranitch. All are done in a very traditional style. He is sometimes accompanied by other players on various instruments.
All of the songs are in “The Irish Fiddle Book” by Matt Cranitch. This is a good CD for those who want to listen to tunes to learn them.
Track 15 Take a Bow
Anyone know the name of the 2nd tune on track 15 of this album?
Comes after Boys of Ballisodare slip jig and before Boys of Malin and I think the beginning notes are B2BG A2GE| DGBG AGED
Could it be ?
I don’t have this recording, but isn’t it more likely that “The Boys Of Ballisodare” is the reel of that name rather than the slip-jig, since it’s followed by another 5 reels ?
This is a slip jig Boys of Ballisodare.
This seems close, but I listened to it on the Stony Steps by Matt Malloy and it didn“t seem like the same tune.
I t seems that Michael Dwyers favorite is the New Policeman I was looking for. I was a bit confused because there is also the New Policeman which is the same as Belles of Tipperary. I think that somehow this should be shown when one clicks on The New Policeman track when looking at the Take a Bow recording post on this site
“Matt Cranitch: Take a Bow”
I love these recordings, so, not only recommending his well thought out tutor “The Irish Fiddle Book”, but also the first of three, his ‘demonstration’ recording, and these two lovely recordings he also produced to accompany it, “Take a Bow” & “Give it Shtick”. They have given me much pleasure and continue to do so, even if they are showing wear and need to be replaced… The CDs are on my priority want list… 🙂
