Great Composer, The


A prolific composer in the world of Irish music was master fiddle player Larry Redican. I didn't have a name for this jig, hence the title 'The Great Composer' came to mind. Larry plays the fiddle on this tune, which was a favourite of his friend Mr. Roger Casey, an Irish dance adjudicator. Roger kindly gave me all the recordings of Larry Redican which are featured in this collection, with the exception of the recording of 'Larry's Strange Jig'.
