Tune For August
"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 June
The Smiling Lady - Reel
Hello and welcome to my tune of the month for June! I hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather wherever you are as Summer is approaching fast and the sun is starting to feel that much warmer. My husband, Leah and I are also getting close to meeting our new addition the end of the month. How quickly the time has flown by this time! I am feeling good and all is well, so here's to a safe and quick delivery. My mom and sisters will be here from Ireland for the occasion so I will have plenty of support and help once our new arrival gets here. We do not know the gender yet and chose not to find out, although my husband would have loved to know. I am pretty organized but for this I feel like we need some excitement after all the ordeal of giving birth :-) and its nice to keep people guessing right? I will keep you all posted once he or she arrives and provide a picture or two :-)
I hope you will all check back here again next month as I plan to keep up with my tunes of the month as normal.I wanted to mention that
my CD is now available for purchase from Claddagh Records in Dublin. Here is a link to their website:
I had 2 really lovely reviews of my CD by the www.journalofmusic.com
and the www.livingtradition.co.uk.
I am very excited to still be receiving such lovely comments, reviews and feedback on my debut album. Click on the links to read more and if your interested you can subscribe to the living tradition magazine, as they rely on subscriptions to keep their magazine up and running and keep us all informed of the beautiful new CD's released and general news in the music world.
And so with that.... here is this months tune for JUNE. It is a Paddy O Brien composition called "The Smiling Lady". Paddy wrote this tune in honour of his daughter Eileen. It is a beautiful tune and one I am very fond of indeed. Then again, I am very fond of alot of his tunes if you hadn't noticed. Notation for this tune can be found in his tunebook "The Definitive Collection Of The Music of Paddy O Brien 1922-1991".
