Green Moutain (The)

I learned “The Green Mountain” from Kevin Griffin, the great banjo player from Doolin. He recorded this reel on the album “Live at The Burren Centre, Kilfenora”, which was a live recording of one of the Riches of Clare’s concerts.

I also associate this tune with Adrian McMahon, flute player from Kilfenora. It is one of his favourites and he likes to follow it with “The Trip To Birmingham”.

Fanning’s

I learned “Fanning’s Jig” from the playing of Jackie Daly, who recorded it on his album “Many’s A Wild Night”. The ABC says it is in E minor but it really is a G / E minor tune. I recorded this tune as part of a set of jigs I did for the #quarantunes challenge on Facebook, see video below.

Feg For A Kiss (A)

I heard it from the playing of accordion player Bryan O’Leary, who cites Paddy Cronin as the source. It is a very old tune that appears as “A Feg For A Kiss” in Robert Bremner’s 1757 collection, and probably is a version of the more famous slip jig “A Fig For A Kiss”.
