Golden Keyboard (The)

“The Golden Keyboard” is great reel composed by accordion player Martin Mulhaire from East Galway. I associate this tune with my good friend Kevin Finucane, a fine fiddle player who lives in Ruan, near Ennis, and one of the nicest man you could meet.

Random Tunes

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 (see the video).

Jim Coleman’s

“Jim Coleman’s Hornpipe” is named after Michael Coleman’s brother who was, as far as I know, a flute player. I heard this tune played by the great banjo player from Doolin, Kevin Griffin, during a session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub. However, I actually learned it later John Wynne’s album “With Every Breath”.
