ComhaltasLive #242 - 5: Mike Rafferty on Irish Flute

In 1949 Mike Rafferty emigrated from his native Ballinaskill, Co. Galway to the USA. He is still playing his distinctive East Galway music. Mike, now living in New Jersey, is joined by his daughter Mary on button accordion and her husband, Donal Clancy (son of legendary Liam Clancy) on guitar as they play two jigs: “The Lilting Banshee” and a jig which Mike learned nearly sixty years ago from his father.
