Christy Barry’s Jig No. 1

The “Christy Barry’s Jigs” are well known all over the world, this is the first one, which as far as I know was composed by Christy himself. Christy is a great flute and whistle player from Ennistymon, but he has been living in Doolin for many years. I have learned many tunes from Christy, who has always been so generous in the way he shares his music.

You should check out Doolin Music House, this is Christy’s venture where he welcomes people to his home for tunes and stories, a great evening guaranteed!

Kitty Hayes’ Hornpipe

I learned Kitty Hayes’ Hornpipe from the great album “Rooska Hill” by Tony O’Connell and Éamonn O’Riordan. Kitty Hayes recorded this tune herself as Junior Crehan’s. I couldn’t find this hornpipe in the book of Junior Crehan’s compositions, There is howver a reel called Crehan’s Banbhs in the book which shares a lot of similarities with this tune.

I learned The Lost and Found from the the playing of Terry Bingham. It was one of the first tunes I ever learned on the concertina and has been one of my favourites ever since. It is quite a common session tune too!
