Apples in Winter

“Apples in Winter” has been one of my favourite jigs for a very long time. I first learned it from a session recording I made of Yvonne Casey (fiddle), Terry Bingham (concertina/accordion) and my friend Stéphane (flute) in Fitzpatrick’s Bar at Hotel Doolin.

I also associate this tune with the playing of the late Chris Droney, and usually plays it with “The Maid on the Green“, as recorded on Chris Droney’s album Down From Bell Harbour.
