Don’t Touch That Green Linnet

“Don’t Touch That Green Linnet” is a composition of the late Tommy Peoples, the fiddle player from Donegal who lived in County Clare for many years and influenced many great fiddles players. Tommy’s tunes are all remarkable and I particularly like this one.

Below is a video I recorded back in 2015 as part of a 30 “tune-a-day” challenge.

Kilmovee Jig (The)

The Kilmovee Jig is a common session tune which I associate with my friend Dom Keogh, a great bodhran player from that area in County Mayo. I lived with Dom for a few month here in Doolin, and it was always one of his favourites. It has been recorded on a few CDs, including a nice version by Mary & Gary Shannon on the “Sanctuary Sessions” CD from Cruise’s pub in Ennis. Gavin Whelan also recorded a nice version.

I learned “The Good Natured Man” with my friend Gilles Tabary (flute), on one on his visit to Doolin. I have enjoyed playing this hornpipe for many years now and it is still one of my favourites, which I particularly enjoy playing with Adrian McMahon, flute player from Kilfenora.
