Battle of Aughrim (The)

This is Micho Russell’s version of the famous march “The Battle of Aughrim”. It is not very different from the common version but I love Micho’s phrasing of the tune and thought I’d post his way of playing it.

It is very often followed by another great march, “Napoleon Crossing The Alps”, also know as “Bonnie Crossing The Alps”.

Random Tunes

Boys on the Hilltop (The)

I love this reel, “The Boys on the Hilltop”. I think I first learned it from Gavin Whelan. It is played quite regularly in Doolin, I particularly enjoy playing it my friend JB Samzun on fiddle.

Fanning’s

I learned “Fanning’s Jig” from the playing of Jackie Daly, who recorded it on his album “Many’s A Wild Night”. The ABC says it is in E minor but it really is a G / E minor tune. I recorded this tune as part of a set of jigs I did for the #quarantunes challenge on Facebook, see video below.

Humours of Scarriff (The)

“The Humours of Scarriff” is quite a common session reel, which I learned from my friend Thierry Masure during a visit at his house near Miltown Malbay a few years ago. Thanks Thierry!
