Tommy Keane, Jacqueline McCarthy, Mairead Casey, and Charlie Harris

Here are two recordings from when Tommy Keane, Jacqueline McCarthy, Breda and Claire Keville, and Charlie Harris, played after the workshops. I’m afraid I didn’t get Mairead Casey doing any of her wonderful dance steps, but Karen and Katherine have some great video footage of her classes.

Also, I was fortunate to catch most of Tommy’s amazing clear explanation of the Uilleann Pipes, so I thought I’d post that as well. Guy will certainly appreciate this.

Here is a link featuring Mairead Casey dancing to a reel played by John Wynne (who taught us in a later workshop).

  1. Stu! How did I not know that you’ve been using your blog to recount the Ireland trip, too! (Though, I should have assumed!) I’d been following Sean’s blog the whole time you all were there. It’s great to see so many pictures and hear the stories and perspectives from both of you. I can *almost* imagine that I was there–sigh… In any case, it sounds like the trip was spectacular–which I just knew it would be!–and I’m so glad that you all learned so much and had such a fabulous time!

    (P.S. I’d love to hear some of the audio clips you’ve posted, but they keep downloading as textedit files. I’m on a mac… any suggestions?? 🙂 )

    1. Hi Mimi,
      Good to hear from you and hope you’re settling in nicely in Turkey by now. It was a wonderful trip… just wish you and Jeremy could have come along for the fun. On the Mac issue… the following link should help. Basically, you just need to have a program on your mac that will play WMA files. My recorder uses that as its format and I’m too lazy to convert to mp3s.
