Old Players (The): Annotations

T:The Old Players
C:Ed Reavy
Z:Joe Reavy
N:The tune commemorates the great fiddlers of
N:the past: Michael Coleman, Kipeen Scanlon,
N:and a host of unheralded ones who went to the
N:clay unrecognized. The history of Ireland is
N:a fiddle. It alone can convey the sounds and
N:feelings of sad gaiety that characterize the
N:plight of that long-troubled land.
