The man in question is Baron Daebher O'Cearbhaill MacCeartach of
Gavelkynde MacChordie. I have had the pleasure of hearing him perform
many times. He doesn't do it much anymore. He wrote the Cynnabar
Marching Song about nine years ago, at the request of His Grace Duke Sir
Dag (who was just Sir Dag then), but Daebher wasn't a Cynnabar person
himself. He was active in one of the cantons of the Barony Andlecrag (I
forget which), and last I knew still occasionally shows up at events in
that area. The only copies of his works that I know of are either nine
years or more old, or copies of old tapes, and I seldom run across two
of his tapes with the same set of songs. 

If you like, I'll give a copy of your inquiry to the one person I know
who would know how to contact him.
