Green Gates (The)

I learned “The Green Gates” from various sessions, it is quite a common reel. I associate this reel with accordion player Seán Vaughan, who played this tune during a Riches of Clare Concert with David Sanders (fiddle), Eddie Moloney (mandolin) and Ian Lambe (guitar). This set features of the Riches of Clare compilation from 2010.

I learned “If I Had a Wife” from the great concertina duet album “Na Fir Bolg” by Jack Talty and Cormac Begley. They play if after another great slide called, “Paddy Cronin’s”. This album was released back in 2011 and nearly ten years later it is still one of my favourite albums.
