If you don’t wish to read through the notes below, you can go straight to playlist T, part 7 on YouTube here.
The seventh 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.
Gravel Walks (168 videos as of today). The “about section” of the Gravel Walks channel says simply: “The best of Irish traditional music!”. It’s hard to dispute!
Gravel Walks’ YouTube channel can be found here. It’s well worth having a browse to discover some true gems. https://www.youtube.com/user/GravelWalks/
