    Very Nice Dusty! I love this tune, we play it sometimes at our Folksession in Holland
    Your mandolin has a nice round tone, I love it.. Can you tell me something about it?

    Love this dusty. Reminds me of the theme tune from Belle et Sebastian, a tear jerking tune from childhood holiday TV viewing. Beautiful tone from the mandolin - all rather moving

    Simply beautiful, dustyamps! I agree with luurtie, your mandolin tone and crisp, clean picking has me enthralled.

    I recently discovered this tune on John Kelly's Soundcloud site and had to give it a go myself. As can be seen from this thread the tune has been on the cafe for over 3 years now with a recent reprisal by Dusty with his wonderful clear tone.

    John's Soundcloud clip is here: http://snd.sc/kZbFRK

    Here's my go with mandolin, guitar and accordion.

    Nicely done Bob, you've inspired me to redo the video to my original post, long since removed. I played a Sobell mandolin, Wheatstone Aeola English concertina, Santa Cruz OM guitar and bowed a double bass.

    David - that was fantastic!! Your pieces always have that evocative Irish/Scot nature to them that is just wonderful. The OM work is fabulous and the bowed bass really adds a lot to the piece. A lot of thought went into it. Thanks for posting it, I had wondered why people were commenting about your version but I had looked and couldn't find it.

    I play in a trio consisting of fiddle, mandolin (me), and guitar. I thought Inisheer would be nice for us to do. In slow tunes, due to the lack of sustain on a mandolin and my tremolo is non-existent, the fiddle generally gets the 'good' part. Tunes sound good when we both play melody together but can also sound good if I play a harmony part. I therefore wrote a harmony part for Inisheer. I don't know if this is blasphemous for the traditionalists.

    I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions you can make for improving the harmony. Here's the harmony track added to my previous recording:
