Happy to Meet and Sorry to Part

I learned “Happy to Meet and Sorry to Part” from James Cullinan & PJ Crotty’s CD “Happy To Meet”, one of my favourite albums ever. This jig is the first of a set from the album that we play regularly around Doolin. The two jigs that follow are “Dooney Rock” and “The Humours of Ballingarry“.

It was a great session with my friends Tom Delany and Sammi König and we were joined by Josephine Marsh. It was the first time I had the chance to play with Josephine and I really enjoyed it !

Laurel Tree (The)

“The Laurel Tree” is the second reel I have ever learned! I learned it from my friend Tom Delany during a lovely afternoon back in 2006 in the garden of Magnetic Music Café, where I used to work back then. I had this tune stuck in my head as it was the opening tune on Hugh and Colm Healy’s album “Macalla na hÓige”.
