Timmy Clifford’s

Urs, here’s the first tune in the last track on Solas’ CD "Solas." As they go through the tune, John Williams tosses a few more triplets into the mix on accordion, but this setting is pretty much what they play the first go round.

Micho Russell’s

This tune is called Micho Russell’s on Niamh Ni Charra’s album From Both Sides.

A cool tune,

like one for

ever sprightly marching in
the ever so green leafy cool shade of
an ever lasting hot summer day!

Re: Timmy Clifford’s

Just an FYI:
Timmy Clifford was a box player from Kerry who emigrated to Chicago. I don’t know if he composed the namesake tune or brought it with him from Ireland.
I believe he now lives in Sweden.
