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…

Her Lovely Hair Was Flowing Down Her Back

“Her Lovely Hair Was Flowing Down Her Back” is a hornpipe I first learned from The Mulcahy Family on their wonderful album “Notes From The Heart”. I came across this tune many times and in different keys, so I transcribed two keys below, Aminor and Bminor. I think it is also played in Gminor sometimes.
