Skip Parente’s

A good tune to play after "Cook In the Kitchen." Skip Parente, who is a fiddle player, wrote this tune (I am almost sure). Enjoy!

Skip Parente plays a set of tunes as a guest on Johnny B. Connoly’s "Bridgetown." Does that mean he is living in Oregon?

Although he’s trying to get people to call him Eddie now, Skip is in fact a resident of Portland. We’ve got some good players here, boy howdy.

“Harry-O”

I believe Parente recorded this tune—or somebody did—under the name "Harry O." That’s my recollection, could be wrong. Wasn’t he also married to Triona Ni Dhomhnaill?

Copyright?

Does anyone know if Skip (Eddie) copyrighted the tune? I’m considering using it on a project I’m working on and want to do the right thing.

I’ve also seen it referred to as "Harry O"

I talked with Eddie and had a nice conversation via email. It is indeed called "Harry-O". He named it for his best friend.

I know it also as Harry-O and have edited the title according to Mark Stone’s comment.
