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.

Kilfenora Lass (The)

I learned “The Kilfenora Lass” from Tommy Peoples, it is on the “Fiddler’s Fancy” CD. When I learned this jig I thought it would be a common Kilfenora tune, but the truth is I actually never heard it in sessions.

I learned the “Bag of Spuds” a long time ago and associate this tune with the great accordion player Seán Vaughan. It is a common session tune in Clare and I think I first learned it from Edel Fox and Ronan O’Flaherty’s album.

I don’t remember where I got this slide, “An Chóisir”, exactly, but I think it was during one of my visit to Dingle in West Kerry.
Séamus Begley & Steve Cooney play a great version of that tune on their legendary album “Meitheal”.
