Thread Name: Looking to ID an Irish tune
Subject: RE: Looking to ID an Irish tune
Seems pretty definitely to be a recording aimed at competitive Irish step dancers. Recorded at "Oireachtas tempo" rather than traditional tempo, though possibly at the fast end of the Oireachtas tempo range.

Helen, your question mark ("... where the banjo(?) joins in ...") is well-taken. I can't tell for sure (my ear isn't that good), but I think it might be a banjo-voiced synthesizer.
