Eddie Duffy

This comes from a recording of a session in Miltown Malbay, I think in 1986. The players included Garry Hastings and Frankie Kennedy. I only got the name of the tune this year from the excellent "Hidden Fermanagh" book, although the version in the book and on the CD has one or two notes different. The Eddie in question is the late Co.Fermanagh flute-player Eddie Duffy, a man I would have loved to have heard playing music.

As played by Cathal McConnell and Brenda McCann on Hidden Fermanagh Vol 1. Eddie Duffy had this tune from his mentor, William Carroll - that takes it back to the mid C18th!

Re: Eddie’s Monaghan Twig

That should be ‘mid C19th’!
