Doctor Gilbert’s

“Doctor Gilbert’s” is a great reel which I associate with Terry Bingham and Christy Barry. There is also another version of this tune known as “The Dispute At The Crossroads”,  is associated with the late John Doherty, the fiddle player from Donegal.

Paul Bradly, Martin Quinn, Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin among others). I’ve always liked this tune and you hear it in session every now and then.
