Seamus Ennis: The Connemara Whistler (reels)

We hear it's International Bagpipe Day (March 10), so here's a set of reels by Seamus Ennis recorded on 78rpm for Bill Stapleton's Irish Recording Company (that through some twist of fate ended up in the States and eventually into David Giovannoni's collection). The Connemara Whistler tune name is the only one that appears on the disc, but the second tune is another of Ennis' takes on The Silver Spear. The two tunes together are similar to Ennis' track featured on the recently released Taisce Luachmhar The Piping Album, but seem to be a different recording, labeled here as IR 1020-B for Stapleton's IRC.

From the David Giovannoni Collection, DG 78 00-183.
