Bucks of Oranmore (The)

One of the greatest session tunes, “The Bucks of Oranmore” is a classic reel. I learned it through various sessions, but I would associate the tune with the great banjo player Kevin Griffin.

I also heard a great version of this tune by concertina player Hugh Healy, he played it at the concertina recital in Miltown Malbay during the Willie Clancy Summer School a few years back.
