"We have been so lucky to have Flo teach at the South East Tionól for the past three years. Flo has the ability to instruct beginners as well as advanced concertinists in the same class at our small annual workshop. Each student has walked away with the confidence, technique and musicality to become a better traditional Irish musician all thanks to Flo. The tunes she chooses to teach and perform come from the very essence of her upbringing and the rich concertina tradition of County Clare. She truly has the gift to communicate her love for the instrument and the music of her home... We are looking forward to having Flo teach at the 2013 South East Tionól in Orlando, Florida"
Kathleen Cavanagh South East Tionól Organizer
"Among the minority of younger players who continue to sustain the older dialects of Clare are Jacqui McCarthy, Florence Fahy, Breeda Green, Louise Pyne, and Francis Droney"

Tune For May
The Garda's Cap - Jig
Hello all and welcome back to my page for the tune of the month for MAY!!
I have been absent without leave for a little while with some good and bad events happening while I was away.
Unfortunately, we lost my husbands mom and my mother in law suddenly in February and so we have been dealing with all of the repercussions that that brings along with it as well as being very shocked and saddened by her passing.
In other news, I am due baby no. 2 in June. Its not far away and we are excited to expand our family and provide a brother or sister for our lovely Leah. Truth be told, we are not so sure how excited she is about this prospect but she will be my super big helper as she is 4 in July. Where did those years go?
Baby Fahy/Carnevale due June 2018
Will it be a boy or a girl?
And so without further ado, here is our tune for May. It is one that many may not have heard of before but I love it. I learned it from Sully's Irish music book many years ago. Tony "Sully" Sullivan is a banjo player born in England but grew up very much in the Irish community with Barney McKenna and Mick Moloney being some of his biggest influences.
Here is a link to learn more about him and his tunes:
Enjoy learning this one and I hope that I can get another tune to you next month before the birth of our 2nd baby.
Below is the sound file but because this tune is not one that is heard often, there is NO music notation for this tune. You all will have to learn this one by ear!
