Argyll Lassies

I learned “The Argyll Lassies” from my friend Johannes Perritaz, who plays in a band in Switzerland called Elandir. To be honest, I never heard it in a session… It was also recorded by Niall & Cillian Vallely on their album “Callan Bridge”, which is where Johannes learned it I believe.

Castletown Connors

“Castletown Connors” is a jig I learned while I was working at Magnetic Music Café, my first ever job in Doolin.

Paul Bradly, Martin Quinn, Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin among others). I’ve always liked this tune and you hear it in session every now and then.
