ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Linda Welby

I love music and have a great interest in
people with stories to tell of the older
days of singing and music.
I was brought up in a very musical
household with sessions on a regular
basis. Local musicians would gather for an
all-night song and dance affair. I love all
the fleadhs and festivals and enjoy mixing
with fellow musicians. My Grandfather,
Paddy Doorhy played with the first
Ballinakill Ceili Band and he also played
fiddle with the first Leitrim Ceili Band,
he was known far and wide throughout
Ireland and won many awards at fleadhs
and festivals. A few weeks before he
passed away he had won a Connaught
championship.
He also wrote a few tunes, one of which is
widely known throughout Ireland and is
called the Leitrim Jig.
My Dad, also Paddy, came from
Loughrea and he played drums with
accordion player Joe Burke for many years,
and he even got a chance to tour America
with him. Joe Burke composed a reel for
my Grandfather called Paddy Doorhy’s. My
late mum Kathleen, who also had a musical
background, met my dad by following the
group to different venues. She was brought
up in the Irish language and came from
Carraroe, Co. Galway.
Dad is totally my inspiration and hero.
He taught me drums from knee high in
pub gigs where I would sit on his knee
and drum for him. I wrote a song for him
which is on this CD and is called Dear Dad.
I also composed a Hornpipe called Paddy Doorhy's
and a Jig Port Cáit dan named after my late mother.
I have a lot of goals in the music business
and I write a lot of songs, songs that are
sentimental to me...love songs especially.
When I feel down and out I write what
I’m feeling. I like all types of music (you
wouldn’t believe some of it). I like Glen Miller and especially Pat
Boone. I have been brought up set dancing
and love when I get the chance of going to the ceili venues.
After that it gets complicated.
I started out playing drums in a ceili
band.
