Re: McDermott’s

This isn’t the ‘McDermott’s’ that is played on the Andy McGann/Paul Brady LP ‘Hard Road’. I can’t remember the (other) name of the one that is in that set under this title, but I know I’ve come across it and I’ll post a note when I find it.

On that set, he plays his ‘McDermott’s’ once, and goes on to a setting of ‘Marquis of Lorne’, which is not mentioned in the track listing, before playing ‘From Galway to Dublin’.

Re: McDermott’s

Just remembered the name of the tune Andy McGann plays under the title of ‘McDermott’s’: it’s the one I know as ‘The Galway Hornpipe’.
