The Kilcloon

From Chris Droneys "Fertile Rock".
A great one for C/G concertina as it goes down to a "growler" bottom G

i heard this one played a lot around Leitrim last summer. I was told it was composed by a local musician - I forget the name, I’m afraid.

Joe Liddy! Also on Kevin Crawford’s "In Good Company".

“The Fertile Rock” ~ yes!

1.) Reels: Ann Droney’s (Ann Droney ~ MÓC Music) / The Kilcloon (Joe Liddy) (2.26)

The Joe Liddy tunecolelction is available on the web as ABC but I forget where now, possibly Bill Black’s site
