My nephew Damien Connolly plays his own composition on this track. I asked Damien for information on the tune and its title. He writes: 'I composed this tune on an old fiddle I purchased at an auction. The fiddle itself wasn't great, but it had a really nice tone. One day while playing around with the overtones on the lower strings, this tune came out. I just loved how gutsy the tune sounded so I called it "Savage Paddy". Whenever I love anything I say that it's "savage".'
