Helen Origins: Gaelic Waltz - Alan Stivell - Gaeltacht (32) RE: Origins: Gaelic Waltz - Alan Stivell - Gaeltacht 18 Feb 19

So, this is what I have found out. Tannahill Weavers started in 1968 and their first album came out in 1976. Stivell's Renaissance of the Celtic Harp album came out in 1971 so it is possible that Stivell had heard TW performing live, and may have even had communication, conversations, and even jam sessions with them and that may be how Stivell picked up the tune prior to the TW album being released in 1976.

When I posed my question in this thread, I was simply curious to know more about the origins of the tune, but now the information on my quest has become much more interesting. Thanks everyone.

I still intend to post something on the Alan Stivell forum, but I want to spend some time making sure that the question hasn't already been answered.

I love Mudcat!
