If I Had a Wife

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. It was released by Raelach Records, visit their website here.
