Jackie Small’s

“Jackie Small’s” is a jig that I learned from Terry Bingham during the Russell Memorial Weekend back in 2015, and I believe he got that tune from the playing of De Dannan. It also features on a great album called “The Bank of Turf” by Tommy Fitzharris (flute) and Donal McCague (fiddle). Tommy is an amazing flute and concertina player and a regular visitor to Doolin, he is always a great addition to any session he joins!

I recorded this tune on the accordion back in 2015, you can watch the video below.

“Christy Barry’s Jigs” are well known all over the world, this is the first one. Christy is a great flute and whistle player from Ennistymon, but he has been living in Doolin for many years. I have learned many tunes from Christy, who has always been so generous in the way he shares his music.
