Johnny's 21st Birthday
Dr. Tomás Ó Canainn wrote this tune and recorded it with his daughter Nuala to honour and celebrate the twenty-first birthday of their musical friend Johnny McCarthy. Their recording was named Béal na Trá and was issued in 1982 on the Outlet label. In keeping with Tomás' being a piper, the tune on this track is played on the pipes by my good friend from New York, Jerry O'Sullivan.
