Altan…

Altan play this on their self-titled first album (the one with just Frankie and Mairead). It’s the last track and is a cracker.

also a highland there of the same name. this is in the database, courtesy of errik.

Now, this is how I remember -or how I think I remember?- this tune, which I heard from the Mary Bergin tape, I think (she got the tune from John Doherty if I remember well), or was it that I got it direct from the John Doherty album?) Any how, it’s full of a strong live flowing current, that tune, with countless counter-currents and turns and eddies in that version, fantastic!
