A great new album from these two, featuring a nice combination of accordion and banjo.
They are joined by Brian McGrath, Johnny McDonagh, John Blake and many more…..

Love the playing on this, and as you can see from the lack of "links" above, quite a few obscure tunes not anywhere in the database here. Several of these tunes come from "Tunes Of The Munster Pipers Vol.2", and I think it’s great that musicians are digging these old tunes out and recording them. Several others are recent compositions by living musicians, and it’s great to have them as well.

A few comments on some of the tunes :

"Tatter Jack Walsh" is a version from "The Munster Pipers Vol.2", and significantly different from the "usual" version.

I posted "The Kerry Reel" on track #2 here a while back as "Delia Keane’s" : https://thesession.org/tunes/5774

"The Pidgeon On The Gate" is a completely different tune from any of the reels commonly known by that name.

"The Fairy Jig" on track #10 is a Charlie Lennon composition. The link is wrong.
