"The Bothy Band" played in Aberdeen when I was a student in the early 1970s. They played this set of 3 reels - "The Curragh Races / The Humours Of Loughrea / Farewell To Ireland", which they never commercially recorded as a set. One of my favourite pieces of music ever, just posted on "Youtube". A piece of Irish traditional musical history, methinks :

PS - I should have pointed out that this is an audio recording, not video.

If this was their first gig in GB, then it would have been Tommy playing fiddle (sure sounds like him) and not Kevin, as in the accompanying photo.

Correct. I specifically stated that in the introduction to the clip.
