ComhaltasLive #246 - 1: Cruinniú playing some Vincent Broderick tunes

Here is a set of reels from Cruinniú, recorded at the Nyah Festival in Cavan in March 2007. The first two reels, composed by Vincent Broderick, are “The Milky Way” and “The Crock of Gold” which is this weeks’ tutorial. The third reel is “The Green Mountain”.

The members of Cruinniú are: Áine Bird (fiddle), Anne-Marie Grogan (flute), Caitlín Ní Gabhann (concertina), Síobhán O’Donnell (bodhran and singer), Jack Talty (keyboard) and Ryan Graham (guitar). Accordion player Damien O’Reilly was unavoidably absent on the night.

The 2008 Nyah Festival, spearheaded by accordionist Martin Donohoe, runs during March at various centres around county Cavan.
