Michael Coleman: Farewell To Ireland/Farewell to Erin (reels)
This week's disc features the playing of the relatively unknown fiddler Michael Coleman. Just kidding! Coleman is of course one of the most celebrated musicians in Irish music, and this 1921 recording of Farewell to Ireland/Farewell to Erin highlights his abilities quite well. The beginning of the disc plays a bit rough, but stick with it as it improves relatively quickly.
