If There Weren’t Any Women In The World

I learned this lovely barndance, “If There Weren’t Any Women In The World”, from a session with Terry Bingham, Yvonne Casey and Stéphane Germain at Fitzpatrick’s Pub back in 2012. I have played it with Terry on other occasions since and he likes to play it after a hornpipe called “Caisleán an Óir“.

Coming of Spring (The)

“The Coming of Spring” is a beautiful jig composed by the great Paddy O’Brien (Tipperary). I first heard it and then learned it from the playing of Dympna O’Sullivan and Joan Hanrahan. It has been one of my favourite jigs for several years now.
