Bucks of Oranmore (The)

One of the greatest session tunes, “The Bucks of Oranmore” is a classic reel. I learned it through various sessions, but I would associate the tune with the great banjo player Kevin Griffin.

I also heard a great version of this tune by concertina player Hugh Healy, he played it at the concertina recital in Miltown Malbay during the Willie Clancy Summer School a few years back.

Humours of Ballymanus (The)

“The Humours of Ballymanus” is a slip jig I learned from Siobhan Peoples and Murty Ryan’s wonderful album “Time on our Hands”. Siobhan and Murty are two fabulous musicians who live in Ennis and in my opinion one of the best duet of the last 20 years in Irish music.

Boys of Bluehill (The)

“The Boys of Bluehill” is one of the most common tune in Irish Music. Some would say it is only a beginner tune, but I think it is a beautiful hornpipe. This is the version we play around Doolin, I think I got it from Terry Bingham. I like playing this tune with flute player Adrian McMahon, he usually plays it after “The Good Natured Man”.

Cat That Ate The Candle (The)

“The Cat That Ate The Candle”, which I learned from the late Frankie Kennedy (Donegal flute player, founding member of Altan), is one of the few tunes on this site that actually has nothing to do with Doolin. It is simply the opening reel of one of my favourite tracks ever, Frankie’s solo on Altan’s very first album.
