Christmas Eve

“Christmas Eve” is a very popular session tune, and not only at Christmas time! This reel was composed by fiddle player Tommy Coen and I learned it from Hugh Healy & Colm Healy’s album “Macalla na hÓige”, which came out in 2004 and is full of great tunes.

Around The Fairy Fort

“Around The Fairy Fort” is a barndance composed by Vincent Broderick. I picked it up at a session in McCarthy’s of Coore during Willie Clancy Week 2014, from my friend Samuel König, a great fiddle player from Switzerland.
