At our P.V. O'Donnell Comhaltas session last night, here I am playing an air I heard on Conal O'Grada's new flute book CD, as played by Aoife Granville: Reidh Cnoc na mna Duibhe. Aoife is from Dingle, and teaches flute at University College Cork. P.V. O'Donnell, in his final year, at The Playwrite in Hamden, always played beautiful airs, solo. I followed this particular air as played by Aoife, with two of P.V.'s favorite tunes, Paddy Taylor jigs. I learned them from P.V.and played them with him in his final years. Loretta Egan Murphy, who regularly accompanied P.V. in performances, was our guest of honor last night, and played the Paddy Taylor jigs with me and several other friends.
