BRENDAN McGLINCHEY'S [1]. AKA and see "McGlinchey's (2)," "Splendid Isolation." Irish, Reel. G Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). Composed by Brendan McGlinchey, originally as "Splendid Isolation." The tune was recorded by fiddler Kevin Burke on his first album, "Sweeney's Dream", recorded in 1973 in the Meadowlands, New Jersey, not long after his arrival in America. It was not released until 1977, however, when Folkways records acquired the masters.
