A recently recorded CD (2012) of mostly original compositions by West Cork composer and fiddle player John Dwyer.

Many of John’s tunes have already been absorbed into the tradition, as recognised by his winning of the Gradam Ceoil TG4 2010 Composer of the Year Award.

He is joined on this recording by young musicians Elaine Hogan (harp), Edel Fox (concertina) and Lia & Neil Byrne (fiddles).

The accomanying booklet includes notes of the inspiration behind each composition, and a forward by Mick O’Connor.

It is available through Custys, Claddagh Records and All Celtic Music.

Little Katie Taylor

The second reel of Track 9, listed here as "Three Scones Of Boxty" should be "Little Katie Taylor"

Re: The Dursey Sound

Does anyone have a copy of this (for sale or otherwise)? It appears to be sold out and/or out of print at all the above mentioned locations (and everywhere else I looked).
