Drag Her Round The Road

I learned “Drag Her Round The Road” from Hugh Healy & Blackie O’Connell’s duet album “We Were Drinking And Kissing The Ladies”. It is a great reel which I have enjoyed playing for many years now and never get tired of it!

It is also known as “drag her (a)round the corner” or “drag her (a)round the house”.

It was also recorded by accordion and concertina player from Chicago John Williams, who has spent a lot of time in Doolin over the years. It is also called “The Dublin Lads”.

I learned the “Jimmy Duffy’s Barndances” from my friend Stéphane Germain, and I believe he learned himself when he used to live in County Leitrim. This set of Barndance is one of our favourites, which we enjoy playing on the Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub.
