Leo Molloy's Siamsa Gaedheal Band: The Copper Plate/The Broom Reel/The Traveller (reels)

Devotees will remember Leo Molly's piano playing from track 25's disc from fiddler Danny O'Donnell. Frank Dalton of the Facebook ITM 78 Group points out that uilleann piper Leo Rowsome may have been involved in the Siamsa Gaedheal Band (and one can definitely hear pipes in this recording). A June 1929 issue of Gramophone magazine recognizes the bands' recordings as "'The Popular Irish Broadcasting Band,' with pipes and whatnot."
