Jimmy Duffy’s No 1

I learned the “Jimmy Duffy’s Barndances” from my friend Stéphane Germain, and I believe he learned himself when he used to live in County Leitrim. This set of Barndance is one of our favourites, which we enjoy playing on the Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub.

Click here for the second tune of the set, “Jimmy Duffy’s No 2”.
