3. Pádraig Rynne - Megan's Dance

Taken from his Notify album that we will shortly be getting around to reviewing, this track gives an insight into one of the most adventerous musicians around.



4. Jonathan Milton - Kitty's Gone a Milkin'/Humours of Quilty/Green Mountain

Jonathan has just released a new album called Just One More.  Based in Austin Texas he is pretty busy playing, composing, teaching and a whole lot more. 



5. Enda Seery - Lá Gaofar Naomh Bríd

A newly composed piece here by Enda Seery with a real melancholic feel to it.  It's called Lá Gaofar Naomh Bríd and is one of a few tunes he uploaded recently.  Check out his Soundcloud file for more.



6. Niamh Parsons - Seeing Things

A good example, not that one was needed, of why Niamh Parsons is still one of the best intrepreters of traditional song around.  Here is a song from the pen of David Dee Moore called Seeing Things.  "David Dee started off as a bass player in the Belfast punk band ‘The Ex-Producers’ and regularly played with various local folk and rock bands culminating in the creation of ‘The Loose Connections’ with Niamh Parsons and John McSherry in 1991".




7. Eilidh Steel & Mark Neal - Chris and Sallys Waltz / Susannah's Waltz

Eilidh Steel and Mark Neal are a Scottish duo who combine many of their own tunes and songs along with old traditional music on fiddle, guitar and vocals. With many influences from Argyll and the West Coast of Scotland they have an album on the way in early 2014.



8. Jed Marum - Carrickfergus

We really should cover more of Jed Marum on Tradconnect and when you listen to this track you will understand.



9. Leonard Barry - The Foxhunter's Jig / The Besom in Bloom

Taken from his New Road album this is another great track.  The first is a well known piping tune and the second he learned from Micheál O' Raghallaigh, the Co. Meath concertina player.




10. The Pick & Shuffle Mando Band - Orlaith's Waltz

The Naughton brothers, Colm and Finbarr, hail from Creggs, Co. Galway and have played Traditional music on a wide variety of instruments for a small number of decades living life on the edge (of County Galway), currently on the Mayo side in Clonbur and Cross. They have joined forces with fellow musician Tony Campbell, who cut his musical teeth on the Dublin session scene and subsequently with groups Setanta and Kinnell, in a new project that features the mandolin family of instruments.
