Larry Lynch's


This next tune comes from the playing of another fiddle player from County Kerry, the great master Paddy Cronin. When Paddy lived in Boston he always had his fiddle on the dining room table next to one of O'Neill's collections of music. Most every time that he walked past the table he would play a tune or look through 'the bible', as he called it, for new tunes to play.

This tune can be found as 'Larry Lynch's' in O'Neill's Music of Ireland and 'Lincoln's' in Ryan's Mammoth Collection. The wonderful fiddle duet here by Liz and Yvonne Kane would very much please the ear of Paddy Cronin, and would most certainly bring a smile to his face.
