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.
