A couple sessions back I taught a tune called Lucy Farr’s Barndance, which was taught to me by my good friend and our own anchor Amanda. . It is said that Lucy Farr herself (who recorded it on her album entitles Hearth and Home) called the tune “The Kilnamona Barndance.” (see https://thesession.org/tunes/1307)
Lucy has an interesting story, steeped in the musical tradition of Ireland’s county Galway (condae na Gaillimhe.) See http://www.mustrad.org.uk/articles/farr.htm for more info on her life and music, and a little insight into what was going on in the social scene of the time.
So, a couple videos. First one of the tune itself, played by user “Concertinette” on youtube.
Next, Lucy Farr herself, talking and playing.
