Condon’s Frolics

“Condon’s Frolics” is another jig I learned from the playing of Terry Bingham. This version is also very close to the one recorded by Paddy Keenan on his album “Poirt An Phíobaire”. It is also called “Conlon’s Frolics” at times.

They mention Packie Russell as their source and so I learned it from the album “The Russell Family” as well.
