Humours of Ballymanus (The)

“The Humours of Ballymanus” is a slip jig I learned from Siobhan Peoples and Murty Ryan’s wonderful album “Time on our Hands”. Siobhan and Murty are two fabulous musicians who live in Ennis and in my opinion one of the best duet of the last 20 years in Irish music.

Josephine Begley’s

I first learned “Josephine Begley’s” many years ago from Terry Bingham’s album, on which he calls this tune “Mairtin O’Connor’s”. I only found out in February 2021 that this hornpipe was in fact a composition of Frankie Gavin. It is the great flute and concertina player from Laois Tommy Fitzharris who provided me with this information.
