Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

This was Carolan's first composition at age 21, blinded since 18 years old, and embarking for the first time on his journey as an itinerant harper. The squire at his first stop suggested he compose a song about two neighboring hills where two fairy hosts had battled. Carolan's genius for writing was thus born.

Lovely rendition. My band plays this as a hammered dulcimer and whistle tune. I play bass rather than banjo on it. I love the sound of your banjo on this.

Yes, a lovely old time sound here Janet. Very well played by all as usual. I enjoyed it, thanks. ;-)

I think this is the nicest version I've heard played on banjo. Excellent, truly wonderful.
