Humours of Glendart (The)

“The Humours of Glendart” is a common session tune which I learned through various sessions. I associate this tune with the great accordion player from Lisdoonvarna Bobby Gardiner, who lives in Tipperary. It is always a great pleasure to see Bobby on his visits to North Clare and a pleasure to share tunes with him.

Check the video of Bobby Gardiner playing this tune back in 1982 with Johnny McDonagh on bodhran.

Concert Reel (The)

One of my favourite reels! “The Concert Reel” is quite common in sessions around here but I remember learning this tune from Noel O’Donoghue (flute) and Kevin Finucane (fiddle) in particular, they played it a one of the Riches of Clare concerts a few years back. It is very often played after another great reel, “The Hare’s Paw”.
