Ace & Deuce

This excellent release from the celebrated trio of Conor McCarthy, Anne Marie McCormack & Cyril O’Donoghue has already won accolades from critics and fans alike and for very obvious reasons. Combine the collective talents of Conor McCarthy on accordion (a member of the Kilfenora Ceili Band who have made the title All Ireland Champions virtually their own), his wife Anne Marie McCormack on fiddle (also of the Kilfenora Ceili Band) and Cyril O’Donoghue on bouzouki and guitar (a member of the highly regarded Fisher Street group) and the end result was always guaranteed — a cracking album of jigs, reels, hornpipes and set dances perfect for listening and dancing. That the trio has honed their talents at sets, ceilis and sessions is unquestionable — that they have that vital spark of creativity is also beyond doubt. A listen to album will confirm that all is well in the world of Irish traditional music as this trio, steeped in the Clare tradition, have produced an album of fresh, vibrant tunes that will have your feet tapping from the off. Ace & Deuce is the perfect example of traditional music from the County Clare.

If you want to learn how to use bass to drive the rythm on a two row button accordion listen to McCarthy on this recording. Jenny’s Welcome to Charlie is a solo track and relatively easy to dissect. Fahy’s as played by Annemarie McCormack is a version similar to the C major version of Paddy Fahey’s as posted by Dow in the Tunes section.

Tierney’s vs. Second Victory

Just noticed that the Ace & Deuce CD names the tune as Tierney’s instead of Second Victory.

Re: Ace And Deuce

Just noticed (I work pretty slow at this) that the Ace & Deuce CD names the tune as The Wild Irishman but the corresponding tune in the session is The Irish Girl #425.

Editing my previous comment - Just noticed (I work pretty slow at this) that the Ace & Deuce CD names the tune as The Wild Irishman but the corresponding tune in The Session is The Irish Girl #425, not The Wild Irishman #1027.

Also the cover photo above is not exactly of the right Ace and Deuce.

Re: Ace And Deuce

anybody got another name for the second tune in track three?

Kev - It’s called The Moving Bogs on the CD, and above in the track listing.
