Gander In The Pratie Hole (The)

“The Gande in the Pratie Hole” is a jig I associate with my friend Tom Delany. I learned it from him during one his visits in Doolin, back in 2011. The band Moher, which features Noel O’Donoghue (flute) and Michael Queally (fiddle) among others also recorded it.

Another great recording of this lovely jig can also be found on Dan Gurney’s album.
