Humours Of Tullycrine (The)

“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!

    1. 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,
      Charles

Around The Fairy Fort

“Around The Fairy Fort” is a barndance composed by Vincent Broderick. I picked it up at a session in McCarthy’s of Coore during Willie Clancy Week 2014, from my friend Samuel König, a great fiddle player from Switzerland. It is usually followed by an other barndance from Vincent Broderick called “The New Broom”, which I also learned at that session.

Atholl Highlanders (The)

“The Atholl Highlanders” is a tune of scottish origin. Mostly played as a jig, even though it was originally a march I believe. It is very much associated with the fiddle music of Donegal and was recorded by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and Frankie Kennedy on their legendary album “Ceol Aduaidh”.

Castletown Connors

“Castletown Connors” is a jig I learned while I was working at Magnetic Music Café, my first ever job in Doolin. It actually featured on a compilation album from The Irish Folk Festival 2001, which I enjoyed listening to while working, and was played by the band Na Dórsa (feat. Paul Bradly, Martin Quinn, Tiarnán Ó Duinnchin among others). I’ve always liked this tune and you hear it in session every now and then.
