Gone for his Tea

Or…”He’s Gone for Tea.” It’s on the album Aoibhin Crónán by Mick O’ Brien and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh. Also this brilliant vid with Laura Feddersen and Nathan Gourley.

Simple tune, really fun to play. Enjoy!

Ceoltóirí Iontach!

Sticking with the theme of Willie Kelly and David Power, for no particular reason other than that I REALLY enjoyed their performance, here’s a video of the two of them playing. You’ll see why I liked them so much! This starts out with a tune called “An Phis Fhliuch,” one of my favorite slip jigs.


Yes, I Am Slightly Concertina-centric….

But I love the pipes too! The sound of the two together makes my hair stand on end.

Here are Caitlín Nic Ghabhann and Caoimhín Ó Fearghail playing Down The Back Lane, followed by Pipe on the Hob (the three part one) and another jig the name of which I do not know. There is a fiddler off to the side that isn’t named who plays on the first tune but seems to sit out the others.

I love Caitlín’s playing. Her album, simply titled “Caitlín” is absolutely brilliant. You can pick it up at CDBaby. From what I gather, Caoimhín released an album called “Lá ag Ól Uisce” (meaning “a day drinking water”) along with Seán Ó Fearghaíl and Tomás Ó Gealbháin, which is available on iTunes.
