Boyne Hunt (The)

“The Boyne Hunt” is a classic session reel. I learned it from my good friend Stéphane outside Pepper’s pub in Feakle, where we had a few quiet tunes between two great sessions during the Feakle Festival in 2013. It is usually played before “Rolling in the Ryegrass”.

He taught the tune to John Kelly Senior, who called it after his shop on Capel Street in Dublin, and the name stuck ever since.
