The Cobblestone Sessions

Post by Sean » Fri Dec 09, 2005 4:11 pm

Has anyone had a listen to The Cobblestone Sessions CD. There is some very nice piping and fiddling.

Pipers:
Nollaig McCarthaigh
Neillidh Mulligan
Kevin Rowsome
Donnacha Dwyer
Cormac Cannon
Loghan Garvey

Lots of some very nice blends of fiddle and pipes and many other nice blends such as fiddle, accordion and guitar and many others like, whistle and concertina. The playing is great all the way through with some nice sing inbetween.

Yes, the CD has been out for a couple of years, now. Another excellent session CD is Music at Matt Molloy's. On the US side of the pond, check out Live at Mona's.

I really like the first track with the D minor tunes on fiddle. That "Exile of Erin" is gorgeous...one of the few Liz Carroll tunes that really speaks to me.

Exile of Erin was composed by Anthony "Sully" Sullivan, the author and banjo maker:

Interesting...maybe that's why I like it. You San Diegans are the only people I know that play that tune in sessions. Yet another reason I like going there. :)

Yes, I'll be going down to O.C. today the 17th, and going to San Diego at some point, not sure when. I'll be down there for 2 weeks, leaving on the 31st. I probably won't be able to go online when I'm there, so I'll give you a call some time next week...Won't be able to make it to the Field, but
maybe to one of those sessions during the week if there are any...

Hope to see you soon!

Hello lads,

Jackie said she had a great tune with you alright. I know you asked who the other piper and I think it was Dave McFadden.
C chanter is still up for grabs alright. A few people are interested but are waiting til the new year to make any decisions.

Remember, a c chanter is not just for christmas....

Tommy

Happy Crimbo
