S1m0n quoted:

'Josephine Keegan (Mrs Sean McGuire), his piano accompanist, began her musical career at teh age of six. She studied piano, concert flute and won two Gold Medals for Irish Traditional Violin playing. Josephine first performed on radio when she was fourteen. She also appears frequently on British and IRish TV and Radio. [Notes to Celtic LP SCX 55, Sean McGuire Volume One]'

This would be remarkable news to Josie and she has never been married! Having met the late Seán and his (one and only) wife I can also confirm that she bore no resemblance whatsoever to Josie. :boggle:

The notes are credited to "J. Harper and L. Daly", whoever they were, and appeared on a Canadian pressing of Celtic recording SCX 55 - Sean McGuire, Volume One".

I'm glad I found this thread! (I seem to find sticky threads almost invisible.) There are a lot of goodies on www.archive.org, and following the links above has been fun!

I really enjoyed this set of reels from Leo Rowsome
(pipes with fiddle & drum). I like the old style reprise of the first reel after the second.

By means of contrast how about this James Morrison period piece?

Or Tom Ennis (pipes) playing The Coulin?

The Comhaltas Archive has a couple of sides from Michael A Glynn, unfortunately very brief even when you register, whoever dubbed them only gave us about 30 seconds.

No comments here in quite a while but I have to say this:
THANK YOU!!!

I've visited C&F for many years, actually since Dale started it, and only joined the forums very recently, but this alone makes it all worthwhile. I've been looking for these old 78 rpm recordings for years, including compilation CDs, to little avail. Bravo for making them available. I'll be spending a lot of time studying them and learning. This is a window onto the state of Irish fluting prior to the "grand unification" via wide dissemination of (ironically) recordings. Personally, I really like some of the older regional styles that tended to be subsumed over time.

Regardless, very very cool and I'm extremely grateful.

- Bill

Glad you liked hearing these old discs, Bill. I hear from happy customers from time to time.

Just by chance, I just stumbled across your posts yesterday while i was searching for 50's irish music. Specifically the Cavan orchestra posts from 1955. I was delighted to find the site, and i am even more delighted to find the person responsible. Thank you. What Luck! I really dont come here that often. I was actually going to post a thread over at the session referencing your work this afternoon. Instead i will just direct them over here!

Is there a way to search for the full list of what you put up to make it easier to find them?

About the only way to do this is to search for '78rpm Irish' in all media - not just music, that only gives a couple dozen hits for some reason. My contributions are the ones with the detailed descriptions. :D Most of what you'll get is me and the raretunes.org guy, who's a Scottish trad buff.

Glad to hear from another fan.

I imagine you guys have found the Library of Congress's National Jukebox already -- I search on "Irish" and turned up a bunch of stuff from the early 1900s, lots of which is our of copyright and hence you can listen online:

http://www.loc.gov/jukebox/search/results?q=irish

They have a ton of stuff from all genres. I've done so many searches on their Italian genre music as well, and the jazz stuff is a treasure house as well. You guys have probably already heard all of this, though.
