Carolan tunes from around utube

This page is also a work in progress. To start us off I have tried to find nice "clean" versions whilst at the same time seeking to demonstrate the charm of these pieces on a variety of different instruments. Feel free to add your own links using the "Comments" box below and I will upload them to the main section for you. Also feel free to use the "Comments" box to give your thoughts on any of the versions of the tunes you see uploaded here. Please also leave a comment to report any links that are not working and I will investigate.

I like this recording of "Carolan's Welcome". The Guitarist's name is David Rogers and he has another few nice ones on youtube.
