version of the Harvest Home (hornpipe)

Recommended Posts

I love Mrs. Crotty's unique version of "Harvest Home".

However, I recently heard a very similar version played by Seán de Hóra on the album "Traditional Music of Ireland, Vol. 2: Songs and Dances from Down, Kerry, and Clare".

Does anyone have any information about this Seán de Hóra and which version is the original ?

According to the notes, Mr. de Hóra's recording was made in west Kerry in 1960 and does not appear to be related to Mrs. Crotty of Co. Clare, who passed away in 1960. However, since Mrs. Crotty was older, it is possible that Mr. de Hóra may have been listening to her.
