Hole In The Hedge (The)

“The Hole In The Hedge” is a jig I picked up at a session in Gus O’Connor’s Pub with Eoin O’Neill, Quentin Cooper, Jon O’Connell, Terry Bingham and Thierry Masure. It is related to “Larry The Beer Drinker”.

I recorded this tune back in 2015 for a 30 tune-a-day challenge, see video below.

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.

“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.
