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”.

Random Tunes

Girls of Banbridge (The)

I learned “The Girls of Banbridge” at a workshop with Terry Bingham during the Russell Memorial Weekend a few years back. I don’t remember hearing this jig in sessions but I think it’s a really nice tune nonetheless.

Carraroe Jig (The)

This is a lovely jig that I learned from Cathy Custy’s beautiful album “An Ceoltoir Fanach”. She plays if after “Gerry’s Beaver Hat”. The late Dympna O’Sullivan, who was one of my favourite concertina player, also recorded it on her first CD “Bean Chairdín”. This tune is played quite regularly in sessions around Doolin.
