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”.

Hare’s Paw (The)

“The Hare’s Paw” was one of the first reel I ever learned. I got it from my friend Stéphane and Paul Dooley (fiddle/harp) at a session in McHugh’s Pub in Liscannor. A common set in the area is to play “The Hare’s Paw” before another great tune, “The Concert Reel”.

If There Weren’t Any Women In The World

I learned this lovely barndance, “If There Weren’t Any Women In The World”, from a session with Terry Bingham, Yvonne Casey and Stéphane Germain at Fitzpatrick’s Pub back in 2012. I have played it with Terry on other occasions since and he likes to play it after a hornpipe called “Caisleán an Óir”.
