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…

Down The Broom

“Down The Broom” is a reel I have learned through various sessions, but I associate it with Noel O’Donoghue in particular. Noel is a great flute player from Kilfenora and also a dear friend who has always been very encouraging and generous with his music over the years.

Anderson’s is a very common session tune. I have known this reel for a very long time, from sessions all over County Clare. The second part is sometimes played first.
