The Star Above the Garter

Denis Murphy (fiddle)

Julia Clifford (fiddle)

Claddagh CC5CD, 1969. Recorded in Dublin.

Often ranked the best Irish traditional fiddle duet album OF ALL TIME. Also wackiest cover art OF ALL TIME. Seriously though, it’s good. Lots of the old polkas and slides, but also four count em four slow airs, played within an inch of their lives. Nearly every track on this album has become a classic set. Can’t say enough about it. Get it.
