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.

“The Kilcummin” is a tune I learned from a session in McGann’s Pub with Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. They played it as a jig, but I think it is also played as a slide.

Maids of Mitchelstown (The)

“The Maids of Mitchelstown” is a wonderful tune that was made popular by The Bothy Band, on their album Out Of The Wind Into The Sun. I believe the original key was D minor, and I learned it in that key from my friend Tom Delany. It is also quite common in E minor in sessions around Doolin, as recorded by the great band Moher.

Drunken Landlady (The)

This is a common session which I love very much. I learned “The Drunken Landlady” through various sessions, but it’s really a tune that I associate with the amazing duet album of Noel Hill & Tony Linnane.
