An Tri Is A Rian

I actually don’t know much about An Tri is a Rian, and it’s not a “tune from Doolin” as such! I heard a recording of the great concertina player from Dingle Cormac Begley playing it, and loved it instantly. He called it “Mary MacNamara’s” so I assume he learned it from her. It was also recorded by Enda Scahill on his album Pick It Up.

Cat That Ate The Candle (The)

“The Cat That Ate The Candle”, which I learned from the late Frankie Kennedy (Donegal flute player, founding member of Altan), is one of the few tunes on this site that actually has nothing to do with Doolin. It is simply the opening reel of one of my favourite tracks ever, Frankie’s solo on Altan’s very first album.
