Behind the Haystack

“Behind the Haystack” is a jig I learned from Noel O’Donoghue and Hugh Healy, on the second Riches of Clare CD. It is sometimes called “Munster Buttermilk” as well.

I recorded a video of that tune back in 2015 for my 30 Tune-a-day challenge, have a look below!

“The Laurel Tree” is the second reel I have ever learned! I learned it from my friend Tom Delany during a lovely afternoon back in 2006 in the garden of Magnetic Music Café, where I used to work back then.
