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!

Con Curtin’s Big Balloon

“Con Curtin’s Big Balloon” is a beautiful jig I learned from Angelina Carberry and Martin Quinn’s album. It can also be found in O’Neill’s under the name “Hide And Go Seek”. I associate this jig with Paddy Carty as well, who recorded it twice actually!

Rights of Man (The)

I learned The rights of Man during my very first summer in Ireland, back in 2006, on the tin whistle. It is my friend Stéphane who got me started, and I am ever so grateful for all the advice and tips he gave me, especially around his respectful approach to traditional music.
