Banks of Newfoundland (The)

“The Banks of Newfoundland” is a very nice jig I heard during the Russell Weekend 2013 with Christy Barry and Terry Bingham. Terry told me he got it from John Blake, Lamond Gillespie and Mick Leahy’s wonderful album “Traditional Irish Music From London”. On the album, it is followed by another great jig called”Drummond Castle”, and that’s the way Terry & Christy also play the set.

Glen Road To Carrick (The)

“The Glen Road To Carrick” is a great reel from Donegal which I learned from the playing of James Cullinan and Dermot Byrne. They played an amazing concert at the Corofin Trad Fest back in 2013, and I learned this tune afterwards. They actually recorded it a good few years ago (1987!) for a TG4 program (see the video).

Jolly Tinker (The)

I learned “The Jolly Tinker” from Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham at a session in McGann’s Pub. It is a great 5-part session tune and lately I’ve heard it a lot as part of a set that Kevin Griffin, Noel O’Donoghue and Sean Vaughan play together : Colonel Frazer, The Bucks of Oranmore & The Jolly Tinker.

Drunken Landlady (The)

This is a common session which I love very much. I learned “The Drunken Landlady” through various sessions, but it’s really a tune that I associate with the amazing duet album of Noel Hill & Tony Linnane.
