Manhattan Island Sessions

by Manhattan Island Sessions

Imagine yourself in a New York City Irish pub - it's after midnight, you've got a pint of Guinness in your hand, and the energy is palpable as the musicians in the corner lead set after set of tunes, songs, and dances. This is what you would hear.

All tunes and songs belong to the traditional Irish repertoire except The Devil Had Ahold of Me by Gillian Welch, ©2007; Boots of Spanish Leather by Bob Dylan, ©1964; and Who Will Sing Me a Lullaby by Kate Rusby, ©2000. The lyrics to After Aughrim's Great Disaster were written by Patrick Augustine Canon Sheehan (d. 1913) and are set to the tune John O'Dwyer of the Glen. The Factory Girl is a traditional song (ca. 1850) common in both the Irish and American traditional repertoires. The great fiddler Brendan McGlinchey wrote the first tune in the last set, called Splendid Isolation; it's a lovely tune to play in a city where such a sentiment occurs both never and always.

All tunes and songs were selected and arranged mere moments before they were captured on electronic medium for your listening pleasure - for best results, listen with a glass in hand, around two in the morning.

Tracks 1, 7, 8, 10, and 12 recorded at the Wednesday night session at Trinity Pub (299 E 84th St.)
Tracks 2, 4, 6, and 9 recorded at the Sunday night session at O'Neill's Pub (729 3rd Ave.)

A great album from one of my favorite fiddlers. I can't wait for Caitlin's next one!
