Tom McDonough: Committee Meet/Connaughtman's Rambles (jigs)
This week's 78rpm disc deepens a bit of a mystery here at the Archives. The music itself features accordionist Tom McDonough on a set jigs. The Committee Meet sounds to be a version of the well-traveled Kesh jig. McDonough is likely to be the uncle of accordionist Tommy Moffit and owned the Erin Pub in Atlantic City.
The disc's label design is nearly identical to the label design for the Irish Recording Company discs (presumably from Bill Stapleton) in our David Giovannoni Collection; the Erin name is replaced with Irish in the same font, and the details around the disc have changed, but the overall design remains the same. wardarchives.pastperfectonline.com/archive…6134918
