Green Fields of Rossbeigh (The)

“The Green Fields of Rossbeigh” has been one of my favourite tune for a very long time! I learned it from my friend Stéphane, when he used to work in the Traditional Music Shop in Doolin. It was a very quiet day for business and I went in for a chat. About half an hour later, Stéphane had his accordion out and taught me this great reel. I also associate this tune with accordion player Seán Vaughan.

Kilmovee Jig (The)

The Kilmovee Jig is a common session tune which I associate with my friend Dom Keogh, a great bodhran player from that area in County Mayo. I lived with Dom for a few month here in Doolin, and it was always one of his favourites. It has been recorded on a few CDs, including a nice version by Mary & Gary Shannon on the “Sanctuary Sessions” CD from Cruise’s pub in Ennis. Gavin Whelan also recorded a nice version.

“Down The Broom” is a reel I have learned through various sessions, but I associate it with Noel O’Donoghue in particular. Noel is a great flute player from Kilfenora and also a dear friend who has always been very encouraging and generous with his music over the years.
