Is It Any Good, Séamus?


Fiddle player, accordionist, and composer Eddie Kelly played this tune for me and asked, 'Is it any good, Séamus?' I recorded Eddie playing it in a session on the street at an All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil around 1990. The title somehow suggests that it is a composition of Eddie Kelly, but I'm not certain. I am honoured to have Manus McGuire associated with this collection, and here he gives us his interpretation of this grand jig.
