Cornboy, The


When we were traveling throughout America on the first Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann tour of champion musicians, singers, and dancers in 1972, I had the great pleasure of playing this reel with fiddle player Paddy Glackin. Paddy and I played it again in the Raidió Teilifís Éireann studios for this collection. Thanks to Peter Browne for his assistance in making this recording.
