Coming of Spring (The)

“The Coming of Spring” is a beautiful jig composed by the great Paddy O’Brien (Tipperary). I first heard it and then learned it from the playing of Dympna O’Sullivan and Joan Hanrahan, and it has been one of my favourite jigs for several years now.

Maid Behind The Bar (The)

The Maid Behind The Bar is one of the most common reel in Irish Music, but I have to admit we don’t hear it in Doolin very often. I learned it from Chris Droney, the legendary concertina player from Bell Harbour, Co. Clare.
