Argyll Lassies

I learned “The Argyll Lassies” from my friend Johannes Perritaz, who plays in a band in Switzerland called Elandir. To be honest, I never heard it in a session… It was also recorded by Niall & Cillian Vallely on their album “Callan Bridge”, which is where Johannes learned it I believe.

I actually met Kevin Rowsome at the Russell Memorial Weekend in 2020, a true gentleman a wonderful piper.

“The Limestone Rock” is a common session tune here in North Clare and the name is actually a reference to the Burren. This reel appears in O’Neill’s book as “Tit for Tat”. It is very often followed by “The Humours of Loughrea”, another great reel. I learned this set from Noel O’Donoghue.
