Playlist T, part 3 – “Top Ten”, Martin Donohoe

21 July 2021

If you don’t wish to read through the notes below, you can go straight to playlist T, part 3 on YouTube here.

The third in a series of the ten most popular videos on a number of YouTube channels to which I subscribe and which I visit regularly to listen to some great music which the channelmeisters have put together, some of it not available elsewhere. The selections are presented in ascending order of popularity, showing the number of views at the day the playlist was created.

Martin Donohoe is a highly-regarded box player from County Cavan and a man who works ceaselessly to promote Irish music and Irish musicians. His YouTube channel frequently features players who are probably best-described as the unsung heroes of the tradition (as well as many who are, er, “sung heroes”! 🙂 ).

Martin’s YouTube channel can be found here. It’s well worth bookmarking!
