Hug The Bundle

I learned “Hug The Bundle” from uilleann piper Brian McNamara. He recorded this strathspey on his album “Fort of the Jewels”, which is one of my favourite piping albums. This tune has no connection with Doolin though and I never heard it anywhere. Still love it though!

“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.

Barrel Rafferty’s

I learned “Barrel Rafferty’s” from the playing of Mike Rafferty, I listened to his recordings a good bit a while back and this is where I got this jig. Danny Mahony also recorded this tune on his solo album “In Retrospect”, on which it is followed by “The Drumraney Lass”.
