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”.
