Boys of Tandragee (The)

“The Boys of Tandragee” is a great jig that I got at a session with Christy Barry and Terry Bingham, in Gus O’Connor’s Pub. It can also be played in D minor, but E minor is the most common key.
I like to play this tune as part of a set that I got from the wonderful band “The Yanks”, they follow it with “Anthony Frawley’s” and then “Drummond Castle”.

I recorded this tune back in 2015, I’ll try to make a better recording soon but in the meantime have a look at the video below!

Rolling Wave (The)

“The Rolling Wave” is a jig I associate with Tony MacMahon, the great box player from Clare. He recorded it on the album “MacMahon From Clare” but it was also released on the live album with Steve Cooney more recently.
