Nice contra album, including the playing of Bob McQuillen. Thought I’d add it as a lot of the tunes are listed here.

Re: Grand Right & Left

Daniel, I think that’s a spurious argument for listing an album here. How the tunes are played should be the guiding factor.

Re: Grand Right & Left

I still think it’s worth listing. There are several other notable contra albuss here and, though perhaps not authentically Irish, I thinthey play the tunes quite nicely.

Re: Grand Right & Left

Of course it wouldn’t win a fleadh. It’s not meant to. It’s the New England contra tradition (which uses many Irish tunes), not the Irish one. Just as Scottish or Cape Breton music wouldn’t win a fleadh either. Lighten up.

Re: Grand Right & Left

I was referring to their ability and I once won a ‘So laid back he’s horizontal’ award, so I think I’m relaxed enough, thank you. 🙂

We may disagree on the aesthetics of this album, but that is funny. Fair play to you for that.
