Girls of Farranfore (The)

I learned “The Girls of Farranfore” as part of a set played by the great accordion player from Limerick Donie Nolan, which I recorded during the Russell Weekend 2013. It comes after another reel called “The Pride Of Rathmore”. They are also played together sometimes, but as a three part reel (“The Pride Of Rathmore” followed by the first part of “The Girls Of Farranfore”).

This is a common session which I love very much. I learned “The Drunken Landlady” through various sessions, but it’s really a tune that I associate with the amazing duet album of Noel Hill & Tony Linnane.

Little John’s Hame

I first heard “Little John’s Hame” played by Dermot Byrne and James Cullinan at an amazing concert at the Corofin Traditional Festival back in 2013. This strathspey really stuck in my head the the following day I learned it from a video I found of Dermot Byrne playing with Tommy Peoples.

Dan Breen’s

“Dan Breen’s” is a reel I love playing very much. I learned it from a session with Yvonne Casey, Terry Bingham and Stéphane Germain. There’s a great version of this tune on the album “The Kilmore Fancy” by Catherine & John McEvoy as well.
