Didn't Mealy (O'Mealy to the Dubliners) have a detestation for being filmed or recorded, fearing he would never be properly compensated?

Any idea as to what the air is? It's quite lovely.

Just rewatching this. I hadn’t watched it all before
How bout that version of the Enniskillen Dragoon with Hawaiian guitar
And what is your man playing in the Yellow Rose of Texas
A bouzouki shaped tenor guitar (?)

It could be in the "cittern" family of instrument, which includes varieties described as "Portuguese guitar" and "English guitar." But most of those seem to have eight or ten strings, with some in courses like a mandolin.

Who is the piccolo player in the beginning?


Is it John Doonan?

Fairly certain it’s just an eccentric shaped guitar.
At first I thought a tenor guitar but that was only because the other two pegs are off camera.
When he’s playing the Hawaiian guitar you can clearly see six white pegs on the other one as it’s lying against the wall in the background.
It has an almost French made look about it. Body shape sure looks look a large bouzouki though.

In a way it’s prophetic. A harbinger of things to come.
