John Dwyer’s

“John Dwyer’s” is a popular session tune composed by John Dwyer of the famously musical family of west Cork (John is a brother of Finbar, Richard and Micheal). I learned this tune from Christy Barry, Terry Bingham and James Devitt, and I now particularly enjoy playing this reel with Adrian McMahon, a great young flute player from Kilfenora.

Feg For A Kiss (A)

I heard it from the playing of accordion player Bryan O’Leary, who cites Paddy Cronin as the source. It is a very old tune that appears as “A Feg For A Kiss” in Robert Bremner’s 1757 collection, and probably is a version of the more famous slip jig “A Fig For A Kiss”.
