Haunted House (The)

“The Haunted House” is a composition of flute player Vincent Broderick. I learned this jig through various sessions but I associate it with Mark Burke in particular, a great accordion player from Lahinch. The tune was written in G, but you also hear it in A from time to time.

Happy to Meet and Sorry to Part

I learned “Happy to Meet and Sorry to Part” from James Cullinan & PJ Crotty’s CD “Happy To Meet”, one of my favourite albums ever. This jig is the first of a set from the album that we play regularly around Doolin. The two jigs that follow are “Dooney Rock” and “The Humours of Ballingarry“.

Glenside Cottage (The)

“The Glenside Cottage” (also known as “The Old Ruined Cottage In The Glen”) is a reel I learned from Terry Bingham’s album. It is the first tune of a set that Terry learned from Jackie Daly, the great accordion player from Sliabh Luachra who now resides in Miltown Malbay. The second tune in the set is “I Have No Money”.
