Garrett Barry’s

Garrett Barry’s is one of the first jigs I ever learned. It is a common session tune  associated with the blind piper Garrett Barry from Inagh, in Co. Clare.

It can be found on the album The Russell Family of Dolin, Co. Clare, played by Gussie Russell on the flute, and also on the band Moher’s album Over The Edge.
