Connaughtman’s Rambles

“Connaughtman’s Rambles” is one of the most famous traditional Irish tunes and you can hear it at sessions all over the world, including in Doolin!

I associate this tune with Kevin Griffin, one of Ireland’s top banjo player who I am lucky to play with here in Doolin. Kevin actually recorded it on his album “Traditional Irish Music from Doolin, Co. Clare”.
