The Irish Tenor Banjo
Hot Reels and Jigs on Tenor By Steven Hawson

Nice set of tunes well played as usual - it has just brightened up a rather 'dreich' night in the far north of 'Alba'.
Keep up the good work.
Glad you enjoyed it, Quentin. As you may know, the Tarbolton Set is a fairly common one, most associated with the fiddle playing of Michael Coleman of the 1930s or so. The keys of the first two tunes I played (Tarbolton Reel and Longford Collector) are not in the usual keys for session playing, because, as you say, I wanted to take advantage of the lower register of the banjo, and the normal keys were higher. The last tune, the Sailor's Bonnet, is in fact, in the usual key. Steven Hawson
