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”.

Boys of Bluehill (The)

“The Boys of Bluehill” is one of the most common tune in Irish Music. Some would say it is only a beginner tune, but I think it is a beautiful hornpipe. This is the version we play around Doolin, I think I got it from Terry Bingham. I like playing this tune with flute player Adrian McMahon, he usually plays it after “The Good Natured Man”.

“The Holly Bush” has been one of my favourite reels for a good number of years. It was composed by Finbarr Dwyer and you can also hear it played in E sometimes. Adam & Dave Shapiro recorded this tune on their album “Cape To Clare”.
