Con Carthy’s Favourite

A great slide that I first heard from my friends Tom Delany and Caroline Keane with their band FourWinds. Shortly after they recorded it, I went down to Dingle and got Brendan Begley’s very first album (a gem) and also Jackie Daly & Matt Cranitch’s latest album, and “Con Carthy’s Favourite” featured on both CDs, so I figured I had to learn it !

PS : I am not too sure about the key, there’s a bit of E minor in there too…

Bag of Spuds (The)

I learned the “Bag of Spuds” a long time ago and associate this tune with the great accordion player Seán Vaughan. It is a common session tune in Clare and I think I first learned it from Edel Fox and Ronan O’Flaherty’s album.
