Traditional Irish Music
This track comes from the 2011 recording by MacDara Ó Raghallaígh called Ego Trip. Regarding the album Antóin MacGabhan said that “This first anticipated and overdue recording of MacDara comes from two nights of playing before a live audience on 14th and 15th of January, 2011 in Newtown, Co Kildare, not far from his Meath home. It is just a sample of the enormous repertoire of tunes he possesses, and it will bring his music to a wider audience. The unaccompanied sound of the fiddle makes for clear listening and it will be of particular interest not just to followers of Irish music but to students of the fiddle everywhere. I was going tolist my favourite tracks but decided I’d leave it to you – there’s a richness and inspiration in all of them. Bain sult as!"
On this selection MacDara says "The first couple of tunes are extremely well known and I’ve put them together plenty of times before. “Flagstone” is another Vincent Broderick tune. “Ryegrass” is probably one of the first reels we all learn and is still one of my favourites."
