Dinny O’Brien’s

I learned “Dinny O’Brien’s” at a workshop with Terry Bingham during the Russell Memorial Weekend a few years ago. It is a reel written by the great composer Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary and I used to play it a lot with my friend JB Samzun on fiddle. In fact, we used to play it in a set together with “Jackson’s”.

It is a great 5-part session tune and lately I’ve heard it a lot as part of a set that Kevin Griffin, Noel O’Donoghue and Sean Vaughan play together : Colonel Frazer, The Bucks of Oranmore & The Jolly Tinker.

Maid I Ne’er Forgot (The)

“The Maid I Ne’er Forgot” is often played before the “Lads of Laois”, another great reel. They were recorded together by Nollaig Casey & Arty McGlynn. I learned it here in Doolin though, from sessions with Christy Barry, Colin Nea and the great Michael Kelleher on fiddle.

Goat On The Green (The)

“The Goat On The Green” is the first tune I ever learned on the concertina. It comes from Terry Bingham’s album, as part of a set called “Charlie Harris'”. It is not a very common session tune but you hear it every now and then. It also goes by the name “The Frog In The Well”.
