FTX-073 - THE FLOWERS OF EDINBURGH

MICHAEL & JOHNNY DOHERTY

These are the earliest recordings of two members of the famous Donegal family of musicians - Johnny, a travelling pedlar ('for every fiddle tune a story'), with the first 7 items, followed by brother Mickey, a travelling tinsmith or tinker - Both brothers fiddle but to every tune a story - including three of the local 'parables' & 'curses' of St.Colmkille - John has a lyrical fiddle style, whereas Mickey's has the more rhythmic dance quality
