"JOSEPHINE KEEGAN: THE KEEGAN’S TUNES
Josephine Keegan, perhaps better known in the past as the piano player behind Sean McGuire, is also an excellent fiddle player and the composer of many great tunes, some of which have been recorded by well-known players--the band Altan for instance recorded “The Curlews,” and “Ronnie Cooper” has been making the rounds lately. This 2-CD set is devoted to her compositions (except for two O’Carolan tunes), performed by her and a whole cast of players on a variety of instruments. The performances are quite good throughout and, with a total of 45 tracks, there’s a lot of material to mine there, and a lot of great tunes to discover. A tunebook is also available. "
