Four Star Trio from Cork

Johnny McCarthy: fiddle, flute, whistle
Con O’Drisceoil: accordion, piano, harmonium, organ
Pat Ahern: irish slide guitar, high string guitar, bouzouki

Pat Ahern was one of the first to explore the addition of the guitar to dance tunes (way back when…) and has a wonderful touch.

nice swinging Slides and Polkas

Not the Quaker….

The first tune on track six is definitely not ‘Merrily Kiss the Quaker’, although the first phrase is identical.

Sorry, apparently it is…

This version looks to me like a related, but different tune, but apparently it is considered to be a variant, rather than a separate entity. It’s also played this way on The Chieftains 3, and was apparently Denis Murphy’s version.
