Recorded in 1967 on the Leader label, as part of their “Masters Of Irish Music” series [the others were Seamus Ennis and Martin Byrnes] this is a classic album of Sligo style flute & whistle playing. I don’t believe it has ever been released on CD, but it should. I have changed one or two titles of tunes - eg, “Morrison’s Jig” is listed as “The Kid On The Mountain” on the sleeve notes, although it does say that [quote]“Leitrim Fancy” and “Kid On The Mountain” are not the tunes usually associated with these titles "[unquote].

and “The Boys Of Laoise” is not “The Lads Of Laoise”.

The best! Beg, steal or borrow a copy!

Good luck……….

if you can find one ! I think I’ve seen only 2 or possibly 3 on eBay in the last 5 years. I still think this is Tansey’s best recording. If it turns up on eBay again, I’ll post it here.
