Re: Dúchas

This is an excellent recording by a very talented musician. I came across it on "Bandcamp" at the weekend, and have ordered the CD. I’ve been really enjoying listening to it after downloading it. One or two tracks a bit "over-ornamented" for my taste, but that’s just me.
There’s a very interesting tune on track#5, the middle tune, "Uncle Jerry’s", which comes from Aberdeen. A flute player at last year’s Ballyvourney "Cruinniu" played it at one of the recitals, so it must be doing the rounds. It is 2-parts of G.S. MacLennan’s 4-part quickstep "King George V’s Army", which I learned over 40 years ago from Tony Cuffe [RIP]. The sleeve notes only say that it was learned from Jerry Lynch, "known as "Uncle Jerry" by musicians of Corofin and Kilfenora". I would love to know where he got it from [ albeit, only half a tune ].
We will be including some tracks from this on our community radio programme in the weeks to come.
