De’il Among The Tailors (The)

“The De’il Among The Tailors” is a setdance I learned from one of Doolin’s legends, concertina player Packie Russell. This being said, I actually first heard this tune on Hugh Healy & Blackie O’Connell’s album “We were drinking and kissing the ladies”. They mention Packie Russell as their source and so I learned it from the album “The Russell Family” as well. It was also recorded by The Ceili Bandits, a great band which featured Yvonne Casey, Eoin O’Neill, Quentin Cooper & Ger Hoyne.
