The Whistler at the Wake / The Old Flail / The Butcher's March

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Irish Fiddle, Concertina and Dance music played by two musicians at the top of their game. From fast and furious reels to airs that tug at the heartstrings to marches into battle, this CD by Caitlín & Ciarán covers the wide breadth of Irish traditional music.

    "Ciarán has that Donegal fiddlers' knack of being technically exact, fearless and free. Caitlín's concertina is no less thrilling as she expands perceptions of the instrument. It was her feet that lifted us though in the showpiece 'Belfast Hornpipe/Ms. McLeod's' with sublime synchronisation of her dancing shoes and Ciarán's playful fiddle. The gasps were audible”

about

Jigs

These first two jigs are compositions of Vincent Broderick's that are common to both our families repertoires. Vincent was 'making up' the first tune, whistling it as he walked across the fields to a wake one evening. He kept whistling it once he was at the wake however, resulting in him politely being asked to leave the house, due to his continued whistling.
