Ftx-375 - The Mason’s Apron - Belfast Fiddle Session

Tom TURKINGTON, Sean MAGUIRE, his father, Sean Senior, Liam DONNELLY, and Bill MONTGOMERY are the fiddlers.


4 - "The Laird Of Drumblair"
9 - "The Tailor’s Twist"
13 - "The Banks"
14 - "Foxhunter’s" - 50/50 whether it connects to the reel or 9/8 slip jig.
16 - "The Bashful Bachelor"
17 - "The Flax In Bloom"
18 - "Reavey’s" - could be any of them. Bit of a lottery which one it would connect to.

I tried to to spell it like on the recording….

Fair enough, "swisspiper" - the mistakes weren’t yours, but quite often typographical errors on recording sleeves are fairly obvious. I’ve heard of the Maguires and Turkington, but did any sleeve notes with this recording have any information about the other two players ?
