John Joe Casey
2006 release of concertina tunes recorded on cassette tape in John Joe Casey’s kitchen in Clarecastle in 1987 and given to fiddle player Pat Mullins. Casey (1912-2001) was better-known as a fiddle player.
Tracks 1, 3, and 7 are his own compositions. The reels on track 3 won All-Irelands for newly composed tunes in 1961 and 1960, respectively.
The first two reels on track 6 are also known as Gillespie’s (and Francis John McGovern’s), and Jimmy O’Reilly’s, but I haven’t found the third one. I think it may be a version of The Corner House.
Track 7 is The Fergus Jig, and Track 9 is the Concertina Hornpipe. Track 11 is Johnny Doherty’s version.
