Re: Siar

Fabulous new CD from Johnny Óg Connolly. Thoughtfully and delicately crafted music with the usual smattering of his own tunes. Accompanied alternately by the ubiquitous John Blake (how does he find the time), and Garry O’ Briain. One highlight though has to be the photo on the artwork of himself and his dad playing boxes with their wellies on, although I notice his look suspiciously clean!

Re: Siar

Has anyone written out the compositions? I can do it, but time…

Final track of waltzes

Just worked out the last track. You’d have to modify on most instruments other than box or fiddle because of the range, but well worth it!
