Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) was a blind Celtic harper, composer and singer in Ireland whose great fame is due to his gift for melodic composition. Often called “the last of the Irish Bards”, even though there were traditional Irish harpers living as late as 1792. Carolan is considered a national treasure — his compositions are still often played during a session and are also highly regarded. Focusing on Carolan’s works first will bring you high rewards as a player. By the way, though it is correct to say “Turlough O’Carolan” when giving the full name, when no first name is given one should simply refer to him as “Carolan.”.

Although not a composer in the classical sense, Carolan is considered by many to be Ireland's national composer. Harpers in the old Irish tradition were still living as late as 1792, and ten, including Arthur O'Neill, Patrick Quin and Donnchadh Ó Hámsaigh, attended the Belfast Harp Festival. Ó Hámsaigh did play some of Carolan's music but disliked it for being too modern. Some of Carolan's own compositions show influences of the style of continental classical music, whereas others such as Carolan's Farewell to Music reflect a much older style of "Gaelic Harping".

O'Carolan composed this sprightly drinking song for George Brabazon of New Park (later Brabazon Park), County Mayo. Donal O’Sullivan (1958) says Brabazon must have been a young man and a bachelor when O’Carolan composed the air, while the harper himself was near the end of his career. George Brabazon married Sarah, daughter of Dominick Bourke of Clorough, County Galway, and died in March, 1780. An ancestor, Sir William Brabazon, was Lord Treasurer and Lord Chief Justice of Ireland in the reign of Henry VIII. His Planxty George Brabazon Reel is also known as George Barbazon, George Brabazon, George Brabazon, 2nd Air, George Brabizon, Second Air, Prince Charlie’s Welcome To The Isle Of Skye, There Were Twa Bonnie Maidens, Twa Bonnie Maids, Twa Bonny Maidens.

Although originally composed for Traditional Irish Instruments, I created this interpretation of the "Planxty George Brabazon" for Flute & Strings (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
