Martin Wynne’s No. 1

I learned Martin Wynne’s No. 1 from the Riches of Clare CD back in 2010. It was part of a great set of reels played by Eric Healy (fiddle), Colm Healy (accordion), Kieran Hehir (banjo) and Seanie McGrath (bouzouki).

Martin Wynne was one of the great Sligo fiddlers of the 20th Century and this particular reel is quite a common session tune.

Cat That Ate The Candle (The)

“The Cat That Ate The Candle”, which I learned from the late Frankie Kennedy (Donegal flute player, founding member of Altan), is one of the few tunes on this site that actually has nothing to do with Doolin. It is simply the opening reel of one of my favourite tracks ever, Frankie’s solo on Altan’s very first album.
