Martin Ansboro’s

Poor Martin Ansboro. Matt Molloy has recorded a reel attributed to him on his 1st and 2nd albums, but both the contributers who posted the recordings have mis-spelt his name, so the link won’t show up. This is from the “black” album, the 1st, and is played after “Josie McDermott’s”.

Alternate spelling

The link will show up just fine if you add an alternate title with the spelling variation.

Rather not

Sorry, Jeremy, I’m not willing to misrepresent Martin Ansboro’s surname. That would just perpetuate the mistake.

Well, you may not be willing to but I am: I’ve added the alternate spelling as an alternate title.

Martin Ansboro

Would this be the same Martin Ansboro from Bohola with sons Tommy, Martin, Johnny Benny & daughter Anne

the one played in heathery breeze is a different tune right? can’t find it on the site…

Very like the Gossan that Beat his Father and the Ballinafad Fancy, but in a different key. Can’t think how I didn’t notice it before.
