Dan Breen’s

“Dan Breen’s” is a reel I love playing very much. I learned it from a session with Yvonne Casey, Terry Bingham and Stéphane Germain. There’s a great version of this tune on the album “The Kilmore Fancy” by Catherine & John McEvoy as well.

Below is a video from a few years back, as I recorded this tune for a “30 Tune-a-day” challenge.

“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.
