Hare’s Paw (The)

“The Hare’s Paw” was one of the first reel I ever learned. I got it from my friend Stéphane and Paul Dooley (fiddle/harp) at a session in McHugh’s Pub in Liscannor. A common set in the area is to play “The Hare’s Paw” before another great tune, “The Concert Reel“.

I learned “Dever The Dancer” from Lorraine Hickey and Kevin Rowsome, who recorded this lovely slip jig on one of the Irish Folk Festival’s compilation CDs. I used to listen to these albums quite a lot when I was working in Magnetic Music Café, which my very first job in Doolin back in 2006. I actually met Kevin Rowsome at the Russell Memorial Weekend in 2020, a true gentleman a wonderful piper.
