The Cornstalk is Sean Ryan tune
I transcribed this from Martin O’Brien’s ‘An Crann Carraige’ CD (2006). He plays it with Miss MacDonald’s Reel. This is a different Corn Stack from the one Mary MacNamara plays on ‘Anglo International’. I like the pace of this and the range.
Clare concertina player Dympna O’Sullivan recorded it on "The Sanctuary Sessions."
"This is a different Corn Stack from the one Mary MacNamara plays…"
I’ll say! The tune she’s playing on Anglo International isn’t The Cornstack at all. It’s a different tune entirely. It is misnamed on AI. I can’t think of the proper name for the tune she plays but I’m sure somebody will post the proper title if I don’t recall it.
The name of the tune is The Mountain Top …
