Jenny’s Wedding

“Jenny’s Wedding” is a common session tune that I learned from Noel O’Donoghue and Sean Vaughan through various sessions at O’Connor’s. I also associate this tune with Paddy Keenan, who recorded it on his album “Na Keen Affair”.

I recorded “Jenny’s Wedding” back in 2015 for a 30 tune-a-day challenge, you can watch the video below.

It comes after another reel called “The Pride Of Rathmore”. They are also played together sometimes, but as a three part reel (“The Pride Of Rathmore” followed by the first part of “The Girls Of Farranfore”).

Josephine Begley’s

I first learned “Josephine Begley’s” many years ago from Terry Bingham’s album, on which he calls this tune “Mairtin O’Connor’s”. I only found out in February 2021 that this hornpipe was in fact a composition of Frankie Gavin.
