  1. Hi Takayuki, as promised, I had a go at learning & recording that other Concertina Hornpipe ( Brendan's Fancy ) this afternoon. ๐Ÿ™‚ Concertina Hornpipe ( Brendan's Fancy ) Cheers, Dick
  2. Ah that's great, many thanks for the new link. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Yes, another lovely tune, well played. It's not one I play, but given the date I might just have a go at learning that one today. Cheers, Dick
  3. Yes, that's the one. I was lucky enough to spend a week in old John's Fiddle class at the Willie Clancy week, back in the late 70s. Here he is that year, with Bobby Casey & all the Fiddle students that year. Bobby actually spent the week helping John in his class that week & it was such a pleasure hearing them play together. ( Photo, I believe was taken by John Kelly junior ) That's me, just behind John's left shoulder ... like most blokes back then - Big Hair & Beard. ๐Ÿ˜€ .. I still have the Beard. ๐Ÿ˜‰ As for this Hornpipe, I actually really liked Sean Keane's brilliant version of it, so my playing of it is closer to his. For my money, Fiddle playing just doesn't get any better than this - Sean Keane ~ The Bank of Turf Cheers, Dick
  4. That's a pity. I can't listen to your recording as I don't own a smart phone, so I can't access it. Did you post it anywhere else? I'm guessing it's this one, also known as Brendan's Fancy: Brendanโ€™s Fancy Cheers, Dick
  5. Happy World Concertina Day ๐Ÿ˜Ž I recorded this Irish Hornpipe on my own Wheatstone Concertina last night ~ The Bank of Turf, which I believe old John Kelly sometimes called The Concertina Hornpipe. The Concertina Hornpipe ( aka The Bank of Turf ) Cheers, Dick
  6. Hi, Sorry, I only spotted your reply/question today. ๐Ÿ™„ Yes, but in Scotland historically we tend to call it a Trump. Cheers, Dick
