Condon’s Frolics

“Condon’s Frolics” is another jig I learned from the playing of Terry Bingham. This version is also very close to the one recorded by Paddy Keenan on his album “Poirt An Phíobaire”. It is also called “Conlon’s Frolics” at times.

“The Golden Keyboard” is great reel composed by accordion player Martin Mulhaire from East Galway. I associate this tune with my good friend Kevin Finucane, a fine fiddle player who lives in Ruan, near Ennis, and one of the nicest man you could meet.
