Michael J. Grogan and Patrick Carberry: Joy of My Life/Banks of Lough Gowna (jigs)
It was hard to pick a side of this week's 78rpm disc to feature, so we're doing both! This set of jigs from accordionist Michael J. Grogan and "Irish Tambourine" (aka bodhrán) was recorded in 1946. Grogan's B section of the Banks of Lough Gowna is particularly lovely.
