The Road to My Second Solo Album

Blog 2: by Enda Seery

At this stage, the layout and plan for the new album is complete. I have planned meticulously to work out a varied structure for this recording. The Winding Clock album was quite straightforward in terms of choice of tune with the album made up of reels, jigs, hornpipes and slow airs. I can tell you that album number two will be quite different partly because of my time spent in Limerick this year on the MA in Traditional Irish Music Performance and because of my new experiences of listening to and playing with musicians/singers of all styles and instrumentation.

My own original compositions will again feature strongly for this new album. Readers might remember that The Winding Clock featured seven of my compositions: 5 jigs, 1 reel, 1 slow Air. Album number two will feature a variety of nine of my compositions: 4 reels, 3 jigs, 1 hornpipe, 1 slow waltz. I will be delighted to record my hornpipe composition ‘Langton’s of Kilkenny’ which achieved 3rd place in the ‘Newly Composed Dance Tune’ competition at the 2011 Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann. Only last week, I again visited Langton’s hotel in Kilkenny playing at a wedding reception with Dublin native Daoiri Farrell, a brilliant singer and bouzouki player.

I am only giving away one of the tune names for the album at this stage but here is the album outline without names of course!
