The Mover

Learned this from Lunasa’s album Se. Not much to say, tell me how you guys like it.

Nessa The Mover, Brendan Larrissey

Written by Brendan Larrissey and on his UP THE MOY ROAD CD with Mike Considine. Nessa is one of Brendan’s daughters. Also, Hat For Hannah, a great tune on the same CD.

Thanks, I uasually put who the writter is, but I guess i forgot to this time.

Please add some info on the composer. I think I read somewhere he is a fiddler from Clare or Galway.


I think from Dundalk, “slainte”. He used to play with “Arcady”

Haha, it’s totally opposite side of Ireland. Thanks Kenny.

My nit-picky transcription of Lunasa’s version

Up the Moy Road CD

I have now submitted this ( since rather to my surprise it was not already in. Brendan Larrissey comes from Dundalk but now lives in Kinvara (on the Moy Road unless he’s moved since the CD came out), so Kenny and Slainte are both right (of course!).
