Great box from Caoilte and superb DADGAD guitar playing by Tim Murray. Available in Australia but I don’t know about the rest of the world? Highly recommended.
The guitarist is JIM not Tim Murray. Sorry for the nit-picking. He is certainly an able accompanist - if you like that style he’s probably the best. I think he uses double dropped D tuning - that is standard with the top and bottom both down to D. He’s also the accompanist for Seamus Begley and Sharon Shannon.
The First Nil Fhois Agam on track 4 is the Dunmore Lasses. Don’t know what the other one is. Track 9 "Cooley’s Reels" is Some reel I don’t know followed by Cooley’s reel and then the Wise Maid. Caoilte plays heaps of these tunes in strange keys, does anyone know whether he just does East-Clare style playing stuff in flat keys or whether he has a C/C# or other box? Actually, does anyone know if he’s BC or C#D?
Caoilte plays a b/c and a c#/d on the album before leaving. This cd can be purchased directly from caoilte by emailing email@example.com.
