GUEST,jim bainbridge Bobby Casey - who did he play with? (5) RE: Bobby Casey - who did he play with? 15 Feb 21


Bobby Casey came up to the Northeast in the late 60s after we met him at the 'Favourite' pub and invited him to bring a trio. He chose to come with the aforementioned Tommy McCarthy on pipes- Tommy Maguire on accordion made up the trio.
They played a couple of clubs, including our Marsden Inn, but Bobby had a cousin who was a builder in Gateshead & a wonderful party was held there- I took a fancy to one jig he played & asked its name.
'Jasus I don't know, but I'm opening a bottle of wine just now, so we'll call it the 'Corkscrew' I've done that ever since.
I agree that Dermot Kearney is the man to talk to- or you might get more clues from his notes to the CD he did of Bobby some years ago?
