Songs of Erne: Volume 1 : by Marc Geagan.
This collection of tunes, in the tradition of "The Northern Fiddler," documents the music of South Donegal and West Fermanagh, through interviews, tunes and songs. Local songs from Paddy Tunney (“Father of Song”) and tunes from Ruaidhrí Dall Ó Catháin (composer of Tabhair dom do Lámh and The Hawk of Ballyshannon) and Poet/Music Collector William Allingham are featured in the book. The book is illustrated by the iconic local artist Barry Britton. There is also an accompanying CD that features contemporary versions of the collected material. The CD contains contributions from some of the finest musicians in the South Donegal area, including guitar virtuoso Steve Cooney, Ulster Fleadh winner Farrah Bogle and Kila’s Seanan Brennan.
