Glen Road To Carrick (The)

“The Glen Road To Carrick” is a great reel from Donegal which I learned from the playing of James Cullinan and Dermot Byrne. They played an amazing concert at the Corofin Trad Fest back in 2013, and I learned this tune afterwards. They actually recorded it a good few years ago (1987!) for a TG4 program, you can watch the video below!

Sailor on the Rock (The)

The Sailor on the Rock is a great session tune that I associate with the playing of Joe Cooley, the legendary accordion player from Peterswell, Co. Galway. I learned this reel through various sessions, can’t really pin one down in particular as it is quite a popular session tune.

I learned the “Jimmy Duffy’s Barndances” from my friend Stéphane Germain, and I believe he learned himself when he used to live in County Leitrim. This set of Barndance is one of our favourites, which we enjoy playing on the Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub.
