Hey all,



I've recently discovered Art Galbraith's crooked "Flowers of Edinburgh." His playing is beautiful and I find the odd setting intriguing.



I notice there are two different recordings on the Slippery-Hill website of Galbraith playing "Flowers." I believe the guitarist on the 1981 recording is Gordon McCann. Does anyone have any idea who the guitarist is on the 1969 recording?



1969: Art Galbraith fiddle, ? guitar

1981: Art Galbraith fiddle, Gordon McCann guitar (I think)

Thanks for any info anyone can share!

I just got an answer from author Howard Marshall (of "Play Me Something Quick and Devilish"). He was present when Galbraith recorded "Flowers of Edinburgh" in 1969 and says the guitarist was Michael Breid :)

I heard a very similar version at a jam once so I learned it. I was totally unaware of the Galbraith recordings. The Horsenecks have a great recording: youtu.be/EJrk3-wRBA0

Something wild and interesting seems to happen when Celtic gets played as OT.
