  • Are there any recordings of Jimmy McHugh available anywhere? Or video?Searching on the web is complicated by there being some American mediocrity of the same name who gets all the exposure. I mean the brilliant one.
  • I guess you mean this one?http://www.jimmymchugh.org/ http://www.jimmymchugh.org/video.htm It only seems to be memorial concert recordings which are available but, maybe, they might have some knowledge of others?

  • I think its the American aspect which annoys Jack rather more than whether he is is mediocre or not.:-)
  • I know someone who might have some informal recordings of the sessions in the (Stagedoor?) Bar - the one near the Citizens Theatre where there used to be great Irish sessions some years ago -- I think the McHughs were very involved in these?Ill ask - unless theres someone else who used to attend, has more info (I was never there)
  • http://thesession.org/recordings/4365Jimmy recorded as leader of The Four Provinces Ceili Band - see above, but I dont know of any commercial solo recordings, Jack. I think I might have 1 or 2 recordings of Jimmy from a concert in Forfar in the mid-1980s, which featured an appearance by the late Micho Russell, and also a session in Aberdeen around the same time. I think he was probably playing with Benny and Martin, and maybe a few others. I must check up on that, as Ive been meaning to pass these on to Benny, but never got round to it.
