Terry ‘Cuz’ Teahan - one damned fine Irish American musician
I was just playing some tunes of his and found this wasn’t on site, or I couldn’t find it, and I tried a number of bars and transpositions just in case. Terry was a lovely single row player, and on concertina too. I hope those old recordings come back into circulation again, such as from Topic:
Terry Teahan and Gene Kelly: Old Time Irish Music in America
Topic - 12TS 352, 1977
