Hag at the Churn (The)

“The Hag at the Churn” is a jig that I associate with piper Paddy Keenan, who is a regular visitor to Doolin. He recorded it with The Bothy Band and also on his album with Tommy O’Sullivan “The Long Grazing Acre”. Josephine Marsh also recorded a very nice version of this tune on the album “To Meet A Friend” with Cyril O’Donoghue.

“The Kerryman’s Daughter” is one of my favourite tunes. I associate this reel with Sean Vaughan (and learned it from a recording I made of a gig I played with Sean and Noel O’Donoghue). Anytime he plays this tune feels like it’s party time! Great tune, thanks Sean!
