“The Humours of Tullycrine” is a wonderful hornpipe and has been one of my favourite tunes for many years. It is quite a common hornpipe in Clare, and I associate it Sean Vaughan in particular. It is often followed by another beautiful hornpipe, “Mickey Callaghan’s Fancy”.

I loved your playing of this – like an old man, really, because you wander from the tempo as you will, then return, as if you had not a care in the world.
I would love to hear you perform some pieces on the tenor-baritone concertina or baritone-bass.
Thank you so much for your comment Mertens, and glad you enjoyed my take on this tune! I try to be as relaxed as possible indeed, especially with hornpipe, but hopefully I didn’t go to astray from the tempo hahaha! Unfortunately I don’t own a baritone concertina but that’s something I would really love! Just have to sell a few more CDs lol
Best regards from Doolin and thanks again,
