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.

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.
