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!
