Drummond Castle

“Drummond Castle” is a jig that comes from Scotland originally, but I have learned it from John Blake, Lamond Gillespie & Mick Leahy on the amazing album “Traditional Irish Music From London”. It comes after another very nice tune called “The Banks of Newfoundland” and the set has become a favourite with many musicians around Doolin.

I also play it in another set together with my friend Stéphane during our Sunday afternoon sessions at Gus O’Connor’s Pub. We start with “The Boys of Tandragee“, followed by “Anthony Frawley’s” and finishing with “Drummond Castle”.

Cup of Tea (The)

A common session tune, “The Cup of Tea” is a great reel which I learned through various sessions. This version is quite standard, however I would highly recommend Tommy Peoples’ version on his album “The Quiet Glen”, I think it’s the best recording of this tune ever.
