ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The music on this CD is from Ireland, Scotland, and the Maritime provinces of the East Coast. It is played on the button accordion in a straightforward, uncomplicated manner learned from Irish emigrants who came to the US in the 1940's and 1950's. The musicians of that time played primarily for dances so you will not only jigs and reels, but hornpipes, flings, polkas, slides, and waltzes. The cd would not be possible without the help of Ted's good friend Seamus Connolly who appears on several tracks with his fiddle, and the talented multi-instrumentalist Gabriel Donohue who provides beautiful backing on several tracks.

Ted McGraw is an engineer and Irish music hobbyist including host/producer of the Irish Party House radio show for 43 years, author, lecturer, and chair of the N. American Archive Committee for Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann (CCE). Some awards include 1985 Irish-American of the Year, 1992 Grand Marshal of St. Patrick's Parade, Community scholar of NY State Folkarts Roundtable, founder of the Irish Musicians Club 1n 1973, and first chair of Tom Finucane Branch of CCE in 1986.
