Some nice fiddling here, accompanied by guitar and piano. My favorite tune by far is the first strathspey on track 2. Of the tracks with unlinked tunes, tracks 2 and 12 are strathspeys, track 7 is an air, track 10 is jigs, and track 15 is a waltz. I’ll try to link what I can shortly.

Forgot to mention, Inishowen is the same area in Co. Donegal where Liz Doherty and Dinny McLaughlin learned their fiddling. Not too many Donegal specialties here, though, but some nice Scottish and American tunes. Available from Cairdeas Na bhFidiléirí.
