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
