The Echo

From John Skelton, in his days with "Shegui".

This is the tune on "Across the Pond" by Kevin Griffin and Roger Burridge. Whoever submitted that recording called the tune "Pound Hill" but thats an incorrect title.


Thanks , PaddyC. It was me who posted that - well spotted. I’ve corrected the error.

This gets played more like a reel in sessions I go to, and it sounds better that way imo.

A wonderful recording by Joe Derrane when he was 17 years old. It has be re-released on the "Irish Accordion" by Joe Derrane.
