Traditional Irish Music
Mórga have released a new track from their 2014 album "For the sake of Auld Decency". We reviewed it last year and stated that "they have an identity and sound that sets them apart and makes them a little bit unique. It was evident on David Munnelly's 'Tis What it Is album with Mick Conneely last year and it is stamped all over this recording. This is the second manifestation of Mórga. They formed originally in 2008 and played and released an album before other projects impinged on their progress as a group. In 2012 David Munnelly replaced Barry Brady on the accordion and they were born again. You can read the full review here.
This track include "Devlin's Jig which was first recorded in 1920 by John J. Kimmel on melodeon and Mórga base their version on his playing. They follow this with unusual versions of two well-known jigs. The Geese on the Bog and The Leg of the Duck, both learned from Belmullet accordion player Jimmy Keane. They end the set with a swing tune from American fiddler Henry Benagh of Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare via another accordion legend, Mairtín O' Connor"
