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”.

Green Gates (The)

I learned “The Green Gates” from various sessions, it is quite a common reel. I associate this reel with accordion player Seán Vaughan, who played this tune during a Riches of Clare Concert with David Sanders (fiddle), Eddie Moloney (mandolin) and Ian Lambe (guitar). This set features of the Riches of Clare compilation from 2010.

Maids of Mitchelstown (The)

“The Maids of Mitchelstown” is a wonderful tune that was made popular by The Bothy Band, on their album Out Of The Wind Into The Sun. I believe the original key was D minor, and I learned it in that key from my friend Tom Delany. It is also quite common in E minor in sessions around Doolin, as recorded by the great band Moher.
