the 2nd reavy tune is hunter’s house

the first Reavy tune is “The Street Player”.

The link to the Kerry on track 5 is wrong. It is the Green Fields of Rossbeigh, a reel.

If the tune in track 10 can be changed to “Duncan Davidson” it will correctly link to a transcription of this tune.

Anyone know if this was recorded live? I swear I can hear people murmuring in the background, happens almost 2 - 3 times if not more per track. I find it kind of distracting. This only seems to happen with earphones plugged in, without earphones these murmurs appear nonexistent and are simply being amplified by the earphones.

Here is a link to one of the tracks on YouTube where the sound can be heard within the first 30 seconds.

It’s Andy McGann mumbling, listen to the album he did with Paul Brady, same thing. Guess it’s just a thing he did when he played.

Re: Fiddle Duet

1976 release on Shanachie.

The LP comes with a card insert which includes notation of eight of the tunes.

Gillian’s Apples - the first jig on Track 13 that McGann and Reynolds play, is the 4-part setting of the tune which is listed on this site as “Gillian’s Apples in Winter” and not the 2 part setting that links to “Humours of Drinagh.” It is the same version of the tune that Matt Molloy and Sean Keane play on “Contentment Is Wealth.” McGann / Reynolds with Paul Brady on guitar really bring out the best on this tune!
