Last Night’s Fun

One the great session reels, “Last Night’s Fun” is a tune I have learned through different sessions over the years. I associate it with Mary Bergin in particular, as I have always loved her version on “Feadóga stáin”. Noel Hill also recorded it on “The Irish Concertina”.

Adam is the fiddle player with “Fiddle Case” and still lives in the area and it is always a great pleasure to meet him for tunes!
