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!

Horseshoe Jig (The)

“The Horsehoe” is a jig I learned from my friend JB Samzun (fiddle). JB learned it from John Joe Tuttle who told him it came from the playing of Patsy Geary, who had no name for it. He taught the tune to John Kelly Senior, who called it after his shop on Capel Street in Dublin, and the name stuck ever since.
