Beautiful recording. A tribute to Foley’s grandmother and recorded on her fiddle tuned to B. Lovely pace and backing.

Hi "dunnp". I corrected a few of the missing links by simple adding "The" in front of the title posted. Seem to be OK now. Might the 2nd reel track #7 be "The Green Fields Of Glentown" ?

Thanks Kenny. And it should be Green Fields.

Re: Deliriously Happy

Anybody know another name for De Dannan’s. I’m familiar with the tune from one of De Dannan’s recordings and I’m sure it has been in a video doing the rounds on Facebook of late but can’t think I’d it has another title.

O’Malleys is Behind the Bush in Parkanna I think or Ditch and it has other titles as well maybe?

Re: Deliriously Happy

What does it mean to tune the fiddle to B?

Re: Deliriously Happy

maybe tuning every string down a half step? (and then playing using C fingering)

Re: Deliriously Happy

I’d say a third ("from D down to B": GDAE → EBF#C#).
