Accordion player Brendan McCann lived near Hartford in the state of Connecticut. He had many fine tunes in his repertoire, including this hornpipe which he first heard in his hometown of Moate, County Westmeath, many years ago. I was thrilled when Brendan sent it to me on a cassette tape. It is played here by Damien, my nephew, who also lives in Connecticut.
