Fairhaired Boy (The)

I learned “The Fairhaired Boy” from my friend Johannes in Switzerland, a great flute player. This is also a jig I associate with Charlie Piggott (accordion), who recorded on the album “The Lonely Stranded Band” with Miriam Collins (concertina) and Joe Corcoran (bouzouki).

A great slide that I first heard from my friends Tom Delany and Caroline Keane with their band FourWinds. Shortly after they recorded it, I went down to Dingle and got Brendan Begley’s very first album (a gem) and also Jackie Daly & Matt Cranitch’s latest album, and “Con Carthy’s Favourite” featured on both CDs, so I figured I had to learn it !
