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!
