ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
1. The Star of County Down (Trad.)
   I have referred both to the arrangement for piano by Lorie Line which I got to know on the internet, and to the arrangement for hammered dulcimer by a friend of mine Mutsumi Hagiiwa, who made it from Ms. Line’s.

2. Believe Me If All Those Endearing Young Charms (Trad.)
A famous Irish folk song.

3. Ye Banks and Braes O’ Bonnie Doon (Trad.)
I have referred to the lute performance by Takashi Tsunoda.

4. James Betagh (T.O’Carolan)
I have referred to the hammered dulcimer performance by a friend of mine Satoe Watabe.

5. The girl of the Brown Hair (Trad.)
An Irish traditional folk song.
It’s also in the album by my Irish band called HARD TO FIND.

6. Ar Bruach na Carraige Baine (Trad.)
I’ve learned this song from the album called “Kisaragi” by a friend of mine KISATO who is an Ocarina player.

7. Temple House Jig /Swallowtail Jig/ Cliffs of Moher (Trad.)
A set of popular dance tunes played at Irish sessions.

8. Captain O’Kane (T.O’Carolan)
A song by the Irish Harper Toulough O’Carolan.

9. Maid behind the Bar/Earl’s chair/The Wind that shakes the Barley (Trad.)
A reel medley. I’ve learned it from the fiddle performance by Kevin Bark.
The title of the 3rd song became the title of the film about Irish Independence
directed by Ken Loach in 2006.

10. The Bags of Spuds/Matt People’s (Trad.)
A reel medley. I’ve learned it from my session friend Brian Connolly who is a flute player.

11. Silent, O Moyle (Trad.)
From “The tragedy of the Children of Lir “.
The story is about the King’s four children turned into Swans…

12. Sheebeg and Sheemore (T.O’Carolan)
This Waltz is said to be the first song that O’Carolan ever made.

13. Danny Boy (Trad.)
The beloved Irish folk song.
