Even if you don't like the Jigs and Reels you love this for the same reason I do, it's yummmie folk music.

Two shows, there is a 'lilter' -excellent- on the Late Session. You have to wade throught a stoggy fiddle bit to hear it, well worth the wait. I met the Whistle player (great music) and played with him in a band for a while :) He was not curazy bout my Melodian playin but we got along fine.

Hear the Late Session clicky thing

The other show is a from a 'Fleadh' big national competition - Very excellent. The box used is a Piano Accordian. Highly recommend this. Again IMHO trad at it's best.

Hear the Ceilidh House show clicky thing

Dear j0_77,

That's Áine Hensey – and she's a very lovely girl who works very hard to promote Irish traditional music and the Irish language. If it's the Céilí House program you're talking about, you're right to say it's a fantastic show!

The lilter was Pat Kilduff. from Glasson, just outside Athlone. He died just a few weeks ago. Great character. I met him a few months ago at the recording of a videoin a very unusual pub in the area. Wonderful, rhythmic lilter. He featured on one of the early Chieftains records, many years ago.

Miss Aine -
Apologies my spellin department is under renovaton at this time.

I wish I had met Pat. There was many a night when the fun got too good. One in particular where, Bill Dooley I think, and some others had organised a band for some 'do'. When the night came and all turned up there were more fiddlers than stage space. It was very very comical - and the players all enjoyed as much as the audience - one person would climb on the stage at the right while another would have to climb down on the left. There were 17 fiddlers - I know cause I counted em, and a whole train load of other musicians besides.

j0-77!! What an excellent link.....and just to prove what most of you already knew, i've just discovered that I can (somehow!) listen to the music while I'm whittering away on the 'Cat. So I'm a novice, we gotta learn sometime! Thanks again j0_77, this is wonderful! ( Disappears into the sunset with huge dopey grin on his face:-)))) ) Teller.

PJ what is 'Authentic' Irish Trad ?

What is "Authentic" Irish Trad.? Music which springs directly from the regional 'traditional'styles of music which has been passed down - usually by ear -from previous generations of players - fiddlers/pipers/concertina players/accordion playes and singers('Sean Nos' and the like) and is not dressed to suit commercial tastes. This is not to say that only Irish 'regional' styles are 'Authentic. I have recently included a young American piper, Elliout Grasso(15 years old) from maryland on an Uilleann Piping comp album of teenage pipers and he plays with a purity and understanding of what is true and 'authentic'. For a fuller description , try and get hold of my book 'Notes From The Heart - A Celebration Of Irish Traditional Music' (Poolbeg) Its out there sosmewhere. PJ Curtis.

The old tradition I recall was oral. There were no radios in some of the houses where I first heard 'it' let alone a record player. The instruments were the very basic kind show, Tin Whistle - Fiddle - Box and in those days the French Fiddle (Harmonica). So besides a 'dot' reader/writer, a rare commodity, there was no other way of passing the music.

I believe Aine's show was great precisely because it correctly draws attention to some of the err lesser known sources of Trad.

The Piper you mentioned sounds great - I oughto get the CD and give it a whirl..

Here is something for you PJ there are hundreds of very beautiful 'Old Time' tunes here in the South. Most of the ones I like are influenced by what we call 'Old Time Banjo'. Although records and tabs of the tunes are readily available you'd be lucky to find a player capable of preforming them. Occasionaly a 'picker' passes through who can but mostly it is a rare event. Remind you of the Uillean Pipes and Irish Trad in the 50's?

The fiddler is Liz Carroll - and IMHO this is NOT one of her better recordings. For some reason I have a dislike of excessive decoration on fiddle except of course the great Sligo Fiddlers. (Where is it all gone :() Now if you like fiddle look out for Junior Crehan (Gone to Fiddlers Green) a Co Clare Fiddler - may be some recordings off radio look up RTE archives.

Yup the 'lilter' is one of the best things I heard in a long long time.

The Late Session stream has been taken down :(

Yup Co Clare Fiddlers :) BTW There has to be something in the tay there - any fiddler in Ireland that goes to Clare and never returns.

I got a kick out of PJ touting ClareFm, although I admit Pat Costello is great. PJ has his own program on Lyric FM every Wednesday from 7-8PM Ireland time. The program is called Reels to Ragas & covers all types of world traditional music , Irish, Cajun, bluegrass, African, Sardinian, Hungarian - need I go on. I'm getting quite an education & finding out about a lot of wonderful performers. The address is www.lyricfm.ie -
