Bonnee's Ship the Diamond/The
Patrick learned this song from
Gusti, a great folksinger from Cleveland. Bonnee has taken a liking to
the song … is it the ship or the diamond she wants?

Whiskey Instead/Bodhran Solo: What is a collection of Irish music be without
slip jigs & whiskey? The second tune is known, by everyone else, as
Humours Of Whiskey.

Rocks Of Bawn
This song speaks for itself.
I Got The Low Jigs

is dedicated to Patrick's mother, Margaret Chenworth Daspit. Kaitlin plays
a 3/4 size fiddle brought from Ireland in 1848 by Patrick's great great
grandfather, Phil McGrath.
