Bog Carrot Reel (The)

“The Bog Carrot Reel” is not a very common tune… I remembered my friend Sammi, a great fiddle player from Switzerland, playing it. But I actually learned this from a lovely CD by fiddle player Diarmuid O’Brien on which he is joined by different box players on each track. He plays this tune after “Tom Dowd’s Favourite” (aka “John Egan’s) and he is joined by Donie Nolan for the set. Donie is a regular visitor to Doolin and a joy to play with.

Laurel Tree (The)

“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. I had this tune stuck in my head as it was the opening tune on Hugh and Colm Healy’s album “Macalla na hÓige”.
