Loozin’ Air

I got this tune off Garry Shannon’s album, called, funnily enough, “Loozin’ Air”. According to Garry:
“‘Loozin Air’ is a composition by a young English accordeonist, Gary Connolly, who was a regular visitor to Irish music festivals during the ’90s. I learned it from fiddler Elaine Conwell at the Sligo all-Ireland fleádh in ’90.”

The first part’s in A, and then the second part is suddenly in D. I think when it goes back to A after you play it through it just sounds awesome.

I love this tune. Does anyone know more about this Garry Connolly?
