Thanks very much for letting us know about this , Tony. Bought it, and am enjoying listening to it right now.

Track #1 - "John Doherty’s" link is wrong. It’s a version of "Roxburgh Castle" :

2nd tune, "Frankie Kennedy’s" is linking to a jig, but it’s a reel which I haven’t come across before.

Very last tune I’d say is better-known as "The Swallow Tail" reel.
Overall this is a very fine recording, I especially liked the song duet "Máire Mhór", and it’s great to hear a few more highlands [ Track 4 ] , and mazurkas [ Track 11 ].
Just wish I had the sleeve notes, but that’s downloads for you.

The 2nd tune on track 15 is billed as being "The Queen of May" but it’s not the same tune as the one on the link - anybody have another title for it please (and a link to the sheet music here on The Session). Thanks.
