Jamsie Gannon's no. 1 (Barndance) Traditional

Jamsie Gannon's 1 & 2 It was Michael Gorman's playing that brought these lovely tunes to Rónán and Irene. on their album Drumshanbows (2014). Jamsie was a fiddle master from near the very music area of  Gurteen, Co. Sligo who was a generation before Kipeen Scanlon, Coleman etc and had a hand in teaching those musicians. In Jamsie’s dad’s time the family home was regarded as one of the best open houses for music and lore in Ireland. Jamsie’s dad got much of his music from the blind fiddle player Thomas Haley. The two barndances have a 1920's flavour to them, reminiscent of the Flanagan brothers music. Perhaps aptly the music of this era has echoes of the economic hardship we face in 2013 as there’s a vibrancy of rhythm that is pervasive through adversity. There’s ‘hup’ or verve to this type of tune and Mick’s piano playing brings great life and sensitive rhythmic accompaniment to this set of barndances.

Séamus Mag Fhionnáin 1 & 2, Is ó fhidiléireacht Mhíchíl Ó Gormáin a fuair siad na poirt seo.  Ba mháistir ar an bhfidil é Séamus Mag Fhionnáin a mhair glúin roimh Cipín Ó Scanlúin,Ó Colmáin srl agus mhúin sé na ceoltóirí seo. Le linn saoil athair Shéamuis bhí clú ar a theaghlach mar cheann des na títhe ba mhó cáil do cheol ar fud na hÉireann. Fuair athair Sheamuis a lán dá chuid ceoil ónbhfidiléir dall, Tómas Ó hÉilí. Cuireann na rincí sciobóil seo na deartháireacha Ó Flanagáin sna fichidí i gcuimhne dúinn. Tá macalla ón trath sin i ndeacrachtaí an lae inniu. Bíonn neart agus fuinneamh misniúil na nÉireannach le feicéail i gcónaí nuair a bhíonn muid thíos. Tá preabaireacht sa saghas ceoil seo agus chuir Mícheál beocht agus rithim chun cinn ar an bpianó.
