RR013 (2016)
John Carty (fiddle and banjo) and Maggie Carty (banjo, keyboard and vocals) with Shane McGowan (guitar) and Dónal Lunny (bouzouki, guitar and bodhrán)

One of the strongest hallmarks of traditional Irish music is the handing down of the music from generation to generation, and this album gives an insight into a living and evolving tradition that spans at least four Carty generations. The tunes on this album come from a variety of sources: from different musical dialects and from our wide family of musical friends. We would like to dedicate this album to all our late musical comrades no longer with us but who so generously shared of their talent, of their musicality, of their knowledge and of themselves. In particular we think of our more recently departed great friends Kevin O’Brien, Packie McPartlan, Ted McGowan, Brendan Griffin, Jimmy Philbin and Brendan Farrelly.

Re: Settle Out Of Court

Track 4 seems to consist of 3 tunes with a short reprise back to the first tune after the 3rd is played. Third tune appears to be Barney Conlan’s Barndance - https://thesession.org/tunes/14583

Re: Settle Out Of Court

I stand corrected. The tune on track 4 which I had thought to be Barney COnlan’s is in fact Grandmother She. An (ahem) less than perfect ear and making a digital purchase of the disc (sans liner notes) leads to such mistakes.
