This track features Co. Antrim Uilleann Piper John Hughes & myself on Fiddle, playing in session at my wee Causeway Dulcimer Festival, in Bushmills, back in 2005.

John was playing a Flat Set of Pipes, so I had tuned my Fiddle down to suit, which, as far as I am concerned, is never a bother & always a pleasure.

This track features Co. Antrim Uilleann Piper John Hughes & myself on Fiddle, playing in session at my wee Causeway Dulcimer Festival, in Bushmills, back in 2005.

John was playing a Flat Set of Pipes, which were somewhere around C, so I had tuned my Fiddle down to suit, which, as far as I am concerned, is never a bother & always a pleasure.

Here is a link to a video clip of John Hughes & myself playing one of these Reels in concert, at the Causeway Dulcimer Festival.

I recorded this set of three tunes back in 2006, with myself on my Oakwood Mandolin & friend Sam Fleming on his Northumbrian Pipes, especially for Aidan Crossey's great Mandolin resource: An Maindilin.

There aren't too many Northumbrian Pipes being played regularly at Irish Sessions, but we always have one & sometimes as many as three sets joining us at our Bushmills Session.

Cheers, Dick

The first & last tune are Traditional Tunes, while the title of the middle one is actually from a Geordie Music Hall song written by Joe Wilson in 1871, to the tune Darling Nelly Grey, so with enough age to at least give it antique value ;-) , but of course by now it has long been accepted into the tradition.

I learned this tune from an old recording of Cloughmills Fiddle player & Singer Paddy 'Stumpy' Mc Cluskey.

I put together a few local musicians, arranged this track & a number of others, as musical background for a CD of North Antrim Rhymes, Whun a' the Kye had Names, which local rhymer Charlie Gillen put together, back in 2000.

Cheers, Dick

I learned these tunes from an old recording of Cloughmills Fiddle player & Singer Paddy 'Stumpy' Mc Cluskey.

The first tune was used for the Old Set, so on the recording Paddy played it more like a Quadrille, but I've cranked up the tempo here, just a little, to bring it up to Hornpipe speed.

Cheers, Dick

Local North Antrim Rhymer Charlie Gillen wrote this rhyme Oot Here Mae Lane & I arranged three of my own Waltzes, Rathlin Sound, Rathlin Ferry & Angela's Waltz, to be played behind it in this recording, as a musical background.

In 2000, I put together a few local musicians, arranged this track & a number of others, as musical background for a CD of North Antrim Rhymes, Whun a' the Kye had Names, which local rhymer Charlie Gillen put together.
