Michael Hanly & Mícheál O'Donnell ::: Celtic folkweave

Celtic Folkweave is a studio album by the duo Mick Hanly and Mícheál Ó Domhnaill, who were touring under the name "Munroe", although that name does not appear on the album. Recorded in 1974, it is a clear precursor for Ó'Domhnaill's subsequent work with The Bothy Band and Nightnoise. It includes the first extant recording of his trademark Fionnghuala (here titled "An Bothán A Bha'ig Fionnghuala"). Other tracks are drawn from the repertoire of Rannafast (Donegal) songs collected and sung by Ó'Domhnaill's aunt Nellí Ní Dhomhnaill: "The Heathery Hills of Yarrow" and "The Banks of Claudy" (both later recorded by The Bothy Band, with Ó'Domhnaill's sister Tríona on vocals), and "Bríd Óg Ní Mháille" (recorded much later by Nightnoise).

Believe this one's already up, listed under Munroe, which was their stage name.

Hi,
I heard them in An Spidéal near Galway around Easter 1974 as a supporting act for Planxty. The audience barely was listening to them, since they waited for Planxty to start their show (which was outstanding). Anyhow, when I saw their record I bought it.
