Kerryman’s Daughter (The)

“The Kerryman’s Daughter” is one of my favourite tunes. I associate this reel with Sean Vaughan (and learned it from a recording I made of a gig I played with Sean and Noel O’Donoghue). Anytime he plays this tune feels like it’s party time! Great tune, thanks Sean!

Jim Coleman’s

“Jim Coleman’s Reel” is not a tune I have heard very often. I learned it from James Kelly, Paddy O’Brien & Daithi Sproule on their album “Traditional Music of Ireland”. Seamus Tansey also recorded a nice version of this reel.

An Sean Duine

I learned the jig “An Sean Duine” from my friend in Switzerland Geneviève, who plays the accordion. I think she got it on Mick O’Brien’s CD “The Morning Dew”.

Boys of Bluehill (The)

“The Boys of Bluehill” is one of the most common tune in Irish Music. Some would say it is only a beginner tune, but I think it is a beautiful hornpipe. This is the version we play around Doolin, I think I got it from Terry Bingham. I like playing this tune with flute player Adrian McMahon, he usually plays it after “The Good Natured Man”.
