Subject: RE: Tune Req: Planxty Fanny Power and Irwin
Morgan Magan is a beautiful, lively Carolan tune which would go nicely after something a bit reflective. Lord Inchiquin is also very nice. To be honest, we don't usually put Carolan tunes together in sets but there are no rules! If you go to www.harmonica.co.uk and hit Music Downloads, then scroll down to Feb-March 2014, you can hear two pissed blokes playing Morgan Magan totally off the cuff in a noisy pub. One of those blokes was me!
Planxty Irwin is a good tune to play around with, a bit of arranging, harmonising and embellishing sort of thing, and Turlough would be proud of you.
