Healy's House

Story

This fine tune comes to us through the courtesy of Richard Dwyer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, and composer from west County Cork, now living in Ennis, County Clare. Richard graciously allowed me to use this excerpt from his solo accordion and fiddle CD In a Creative Mood, a recording which is a must for admirers of his music and compositions. The title of the tune refers to the home of Richie's sister Margaret in West Cork, where he stayed while making the recording. Richard is accompanied by Micheál O'Rourke on piano, who is heard elsewhere in this collection ('The Galway Jig' and 'The Plains of Mayo') on the fiddle.
