I think this cd is one of the best traditional folk cd’s ever to have been recorded. There’s some great banjo playing on this album and the Rap of Gino Lupari is good enough for MTV.

Tune titles

If you edit the tunes Easy Club reel(3 words) and Caliope House to read Calliope House(2 L’s), they should show up as being in the tunes data base. I know "Pat the Budgie" and will submit this tune shortly.

this album also has two great songs,my favourites in fact - hidden love (the change from the song into sheila coyle’s is inspired) and waltzing’s for dreamers.

Maguire’s is actually Maguire’s Jig more commonly reffered to as "The Haunted House"

Ril Gan Ainm - "The Cruel Father" Set

This is an attempt at the first tune in the set. Played in dotted rhythm / swing style. If it’s on the site already with a name, I’d be glad to know. Hope it’s okay to put it here.
