Tuning Phrases

This I discovered accidentally by way of a Kenny comment left long ago. I saw it wasn’t posted, so I decided to check it out. Some very nice tunes, and very agreeable harp and piano. I like it quite a bit, the last track especially.
As you can see, lots of gaps. I was hoping to fill in a few more before posting, but it was quite tedious to get this far. If anyone has liner notes to share, please do. Help appreciated, and just update the Gan Ainms if you can identify any.

And a spreadsheet of tune timings (read-only):

Assuming w/o liner notes that:
Duncan Nic(h)olson (think the cover’s wrong) - pipes, whistle
Ingrid Henderson - harp, piano
Allan Henderson - fiddle

Kenny to the rescue…..

Just as well that there’s a few of us obsessives still around here. I don’t think I have this CD any more, but did photocopy and keep the sleeve notes . Some great playing on it by all concerned.
Recorded 20 years ago, in 1995, and produced by the late great Davy Steele.

Not a Gan Ainm in sight… thanks Kenny. I’ll add some of these tunes soon.
