Charlie Harris’ Reel #1

“Charlie Harris’ Reel No. 1” is part of a set that I learned at a great session in Cooley’s Pub, in Ennistymon, with Stéphane, Adam Shapiro, Paul Dooley and a few others. It is played with another reel and they’re known together as “Charlie Harris’ Reels” and were recorded by De Dannan.
This reel also goes by the names “John Blessing’s” and “O’Connell’s Reel”, which is the oldest name I could find. I’ve decided to publish it as “Charlie Harris'” since it seems to be the most common name in the area. To listen to the tune, please watch the video below.

Boys on the Hilltop (The)

I love this reel, “The Boys on the Hilltop”. I think I first learned it from Gavin Whelan. It is played quite regularly in Doolin, I particularly enjoy playing it my friend JB Samzun on fiddle.

Jimmy Duffy’s No 2

This is the second tune of the “Jimmy Duffy’s Barndances”, which I learned from my friend, flute player Stéphane Germain. He actually enjoys playing these two barndances on the accordion, and it is one of our favourite sets to play at our Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub.

I learned this “Con Cassidy’s Slide” from the playing of Derek Hickey & Liam Flanagan. They recorded it on the fantastic compilation album from the Corofin Trad Festival “Teach Cheoil”.
