John Doherty's

Story

I loved the times that I visited with John Doherty, the fiddle master from County Donegal. Playing music with him was an inspiration. Hearing his stories and listening to him play made me ask myself why I even bothered to play the fiddle. Mr. Doherty was so encouraging and generous with his music, and I treasure the tapes that he made for me. The highland played here by Paddy Glackin was recorded by piper and producer Peter Browne from Raidió Teilifís Éireann during a visit that Sandy and I made to the Dublin studios. Thanks, boys. John Doherty would be proud of your rendition.
