Micho Russell came to Scotland in 1985 to play at a concert in Forfar, near Dundee. I made a few recordings at that concert. Here is the first, of Micho playing 2 slides on whistle, the first usually known as "Micho Russell's", and the second, "Patsy Geary's", made famous by "The Bothy Band".
There is an accompanying photo taken at the end of the concert, showing Micho on stage with musicians who travelled from Dundee, Aberdeen and Glasgow to hear him. As well as Micho, 2 of the other musicians in the photo are no longer with us - all 3 are much missed.
RIP, Micho, Jimmy McHugh [Glasgow ], standing, playing fiddle, and Peter Forbes [ Dundee ], playing uilleann pipes.

Thank you for posting that--I've been studying Micho very closely and that's great to hear.

From the same concert : an air Micho Called "Dark Lochnagar".

As far as I know, there is no musical connection between this and the Scottish song of the same name, nor the Irish slow air, famously recorded on uilleann pipes by Liam O'Flynn [ and probably others ].
