Josie McDermott was a great flute and whistle player from Co. Roscommon.
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’.
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’.
