* First Time Played.
"The Royal Toe" is a John Skehan instrumental and the title (as with many of John's tunes) is a work-in-progress. The inspiration for this tune is gout (honest -- check your history books, gout was a problem suffered by many royal families, hence the name.
"Daddy-O" is a great little ditty that has as it's inspiration two old fiddle tunes: The Quail is a Pretty Bird, and Sail Away, Lady. This song features Todd on banjo and five and six-part harmonies.
