4 Minutes Of Edel Fox

Recommended Posts

I have placed a 4 minute video with Edel Fox on YouTube. Recorded in Teach Cheoil - the old protestant church in Kilrush, converted to concert hall and used by Comhaltas.

 

Done with a Canon IXUS 70 and shaking hands. The soundtrack has been replaced with a cut from the Edirol recording I ran through the whole concert, so quality is as good as it can be:

 

 

Dynamite, IMHO!

She taught the multipart reel in 2007 as a Paddy Canny Version of "The New Road". Said she learnt it from Patrick Orceau.

That concert was wonderful, as were many of the events held in that venue. Thank you Henrik, for the post.

Edel Fox, anyone else? No?

 

OK - try this

Micheal O'Raghallaigh in a very relaxed concert at Eigse Mrs. Crotty. Good stuff - and btw, the microphones were off: a lot of potential audience was at another concert, the church was only half full, so he chose to switch off the microphones, hence the sound is "as is".

 

The tunes are "The Maid of the Green" (I think), "Trip to Athlone" and "The Hag with the Money".

 

More to come -

Anyone know the name of the first tune?

I've checked the full audio recording where Edel introduces the tunes: its is "Farewell to Milltown Malbay", Junior Crehan. Second one "The New Road"

Hi Henrik,

 

thanks for posting so much beauty. Have you been attending classes too? Whose class have you been in? Did the teachers accept the EC? How was the teaching concept for the EC?

 

Dirk, also trying Irish music on EC

Hi, Dirk - no, I don't attend classes; I am quite happy attending the concerts and playing sessions.

 

Maíread mentioned that there was a girl with an EC attending her class,

but I don't think she was sure what to do with her.

 

For obvious reasons, only anglo is taught - not that ECs are un-welcome, but I don't think there is much help to get.

 

/Henrik

 

Edited to elaborate a little more
