Great CD

Three days ago, a friend of mine recommended anything by this group, and so yesterday I picked up this CD at a local festival. I haven’t stopped listening to it. It’s a lovely little recording from a group who have been around since the early-mid 20th century (lineup obviously has changed over time). The liner notes are quite extensive, providing a nice historical summary of how the Kilfenora Ceili Band was created and evolved. Rather interesting stuff. All around a great CD!

Wonderful recording. I was at one of the recording sessions and the band set a very very high standard for themselves. If any player thought that things did not sound 100% perfect as they were playing they stopped playing and everyone stopped and did it again, and again until everyone was happy.
Turn up the volume and listen to how tight they are while not being mechanical as they were in a previous recording.
Wonderful old march from the Brass Band era. Set-Dancers in the background add to the recording

Kilavil

The Kilavil in the first set is the reel, the link above takes me to the Jig. I suspect someone can amend this?

Actually, don’t think so…

This happens very often where tunes share the same name. I’m not sure if Jeremy can target a tune title to it’s correct equivalent in the tune list, and even if he can, it would be a very time-consuming business. It more or less comes down to guys like us who notice these things to provide the correct link under the "comments", like this :

… 2nd reel in track #1 is this :
