FTX-377 - THE LAKES OF PONTCHARTRAIN

Paddy McCLUSKEY Song & Fiddle

A collection of 18 tunes, reels, jigs and hornpipes, and 17 songs, that were once popular in the Glens of Antrim. Sam Henry noted some of them from Paddy, publishing them in the Coleraine newspaper, "The Northern Constitution", as "The Songs of the People" 1923-1939 including MY TRUELOVE'S GONE A-SAILING, THE APPRENTICE BOY, THE TRIP OVER THE MOUNTAIN and THE LAKES OF PONTCHARTRAIN. Paddy's solo fiddle-style represents the older tradition with strong rhythm and effective string-droning. Other fiddlers are Paddy O Kane, Bellaghy and Terence McShane of Clough Mills, and the other singers are William Coulter of Dunadry, Dennis Cassley of Glenshesk and James Carey, Paddy Gamble and Donald McMullen, from Clough Mills - recorded by & photograph of Paddy McCluskey by Peter Kennedy 1953 377McCluskey,Paddy(PK#121).JPG
