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.

Kitty Hayes’ Hornpipe

I learned Kitty Hayes’ Hornpipe from the great album “Rooska Hill” by Tony O’Connell and Éamonn O’Riordan. Kitty Hayes recorded this tune herself as Junior Crehan’s. I couldn’t find this hornpipe in the book of Junior Crehan’s compositions, There is howver a reel called Crehan’s Banbhs in the book which shares a lot of similarities with this tune.

Green Groves of Erin (The)

“The Green Groves of Erin” is a very famous reel which I learned through various sessions. Micho Russell recorded a lovely version of this tune, however I really associate with The Bothy Band, their version on the album “After Hours” is truly remarkable and a classic set.
