Paddy O'Brien's, Paddy O'Brien's, and Paddy O'Brien's

Been going through some old recordings, and I found this set, from last year at The Irish Pub, in Quincy. I love these tunes! Thanks to Dan and Bev for teaching them to me. All you Boston sessioneers, if you wanna get on my good side, learn these tunes!

Easter Sunday/Patrick's Night/The Four-Leafed Shamrock

The Banshee -- 01-28-09 -- Cider

I wrote this song a few years ago, on the occaision of the death of the last traditional cider makers in Sussex county. Ah, for a jug of the local stuff!

The Banshee 03-18-09 -- Quakers!

Here are a few tunes.

Merrily Kiss the Quaker/Jimmy Ward's/The Kesh

I think I would rather merrily kiss the quaker's wife, but to each his own. Careful observers will note that Liam still can't manage the C part of the tune, and reverts to chords at that point. Just wanted to clear that up -- definitely not an arrangement. ;-)

The Mountain Road/The Wind that Shakes the Barley/Drowsey Maggie

Bit of comedy here...
