Hello,

Who would be so nice to tell me the name of these three pieces played by Kevin Crawford and Colin Farrell?

Thank you

Don't know the first one.
Know the 2nd but will need to think a bit. I think it's more a "highland" in its original state, but it's throwing me a bit here in that it's being played more as a reel.
The reel is "A Parcel Of Land", composed by Charlie Lennon.

Thank you very much. Please, remember, I'm mainly interested in the first and second.

A greeting.

I know the 2nd as the Fermanagh Highland. I first heard it from Altan, and they indeed played it as a highland.

Don't know the first tune, but I keep thinking it might be a march.

On thesession.org it's The Fermanagh starthspey.

The first one does seem to sound familiar-ish but not so much that I can pinpoint what it is. It's easy picked up to be put with the other Gan Ainms anyway. The Parcel of Land always wrong-foots me by appearing to touch on bits of the Swallow's Nest.

I already have it!

I asked Kevin Crawford and he was kind enough to answer me. The name of the tunes is:
Paddy Mcmahon's jig / The Moneymusk Fling / The Dowry Reel

Thank you all!

Although I have searched the scores in The Session and I do not think so ...

Kevin assures me it's correct. He says:

"First Tune hasn't been recorded by anyone yet. Second one is from Mick O'Brien's first CD 'May Morning Dew' and The Dowry is one of Charlie Lennon's compositions."

It is. A quick search tells me that both names, and their variants, apply.
