Turlough O’Carolan. Another of Carolan’s patrons was Baptist Johnston of Tully, County Monaghan. He was High Sheriff of that county in 1728. He also was a Member of Parliament for the Borough of Monaghan from 1747 to 1753. This lively tune was learned from the playing of Tom Hall, who shares some of the responsibility for our formation as a band. Album, Come under My Protection. © 1998-2010 The Angel Band, all rights reserved. David Behm, Guitar; Cathryn Norris, Violin; Emery Hutchins, Concertina & Bodhran; Bob Paul. Hammered Dulcimer; Mary Paul, Celtic Harp; Bob Frost. 5-String Banjo; Mark Rockwood, Mandolin. Banjo in G Tuning, played in D finger style, no Capo (this tune is a real challenge regardless of instrument. Mark commented, "living proof that O'Carolan had a mean streak.").
