For Betty Killoran


Another composition of accordionist and concertina player Charlie Mulvihill from New York. It is played on this track by Charlie and his children Tommy on fiddle, and Geraldine on piano. It is another of the tunes on the tape that Mr. Mulvihill made for Mrs. Betty Killoran, wife of Sligo fiddle player Paddy Killoran. Hopefully, some day in the not too distant future, we will see and hear a CD recording of more of the music of Mr. Mulvihill, this great tunesmith.
