During the week we discovered a very talented writer Called Harris Tobias who has become a new member on tradconnect. He had penned some lyrics for a song and asked if anyone might put music and singing to it.
We were very taken by the gentle humour in the song and he kindly let us work on it. When we did we found we couldn't stop until we had finished. This is what we came out with. We hope you…Continue
This is a new polka that we have recently composed and we hope that you like it!
Drowsy Maggie is a reel that we learned years ago and have played it at many sessions as it is a most popular tune. We hope this 'bare bones' setting is a help to anyone who finds it a bit daunting to learn a tune with all the ornamentation included at the start.

This is our first composition of 2013. It's a slow air called The Quiet Water. Best wishes to all on tradconnect for the New Year!

We just wanted to say that we were particularly taken by the music from a group on this site called ' Caedan ' with Tradconnect members, Maurice McGrath and Caoimhe Hogarty. If you haven't had a listen…Continue
We recently composed a waltz called The shore Lane and wanted to let you hear it. Any feedback would be most welcome.
We've uploaded it with a few photos taken on our rambles.
A slow reel composed by Adele Greene of Dulahan-Irl from their CD " Airs And Gracenotes ".
Video footage is of Lough Swilly and Inch Island Co. Donegal, taken from the Grianan of Aileach ( stone fort of the sun ).
We recently composed a tune in honour of Charlie Pitchard a good friend of ours and many others on tradconnect.
We composed this slow air to mark the occasion when we met with traditional musician and fellow tradconnect member Michael Orme in Oundle, Northamptonshire. The photos are of Oundle village.
This is a recently composed polka by ourselves entitled " The Rock Of Dunamase" which we were inspired to write after a visit there. We also took some photos of the castle and its views.
Now that Tradconnect is nearing it's 2000th member we wanted to take the opportunity to invite everyone onto the chat page to introduce themselves. If you haven't all ready done so click on the chat option and say hello. We look forward to chatting to you all and hope to hear from you soon!

We had the pleasure of a visit from fellow tradconnect member Connie Rae as part of her trip to Ireland.
Connie has travelled all the way from Cincinnati to Ireland to meet and share music with other traditional musicians.
It was a joy to meet her and share some tunes together.
Connie's travels have taken her to Kerry and we are sure she is having a great time there.
Our thanks to tradconnect for such an opportunity!
We would like to wish Connie a safe…Continue
