Killavil Jig (The)

The Killavil Jig was one of the first tunes I learned on the tin whistle, before I even started playing the concertina. I believe I learned it from my friend Stéphane, who used to play it a good bit when he first started playing the accordion. It is a very common session tune.

Atholl Highlanders (The)

“The Atholl Highlanders” is a tune of scottish origin. Mostly played as a jig, even though it was originally a march I believe. It is very much associated with the fiddle music of Donegal and was recorded by Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh and Frankie Kennedy on their legendary album “Ceol Aduaidh”.

Concert Reel (The)

One of my favourite reels! “The Concert Reel” is quite common in sessions around here but I remember learning this tune from Noel O’Donoghue (flute) and Kevin Finucane (fiddle) in particular, they played it a one of the Riches of Clare concerts a few years back. It is very often played after another great reel, “The Hare’s Paw”.

Hold The Reins

I learned “Hold The Reins” from a session recording I made of a nice evening in Hotel Doolin back in 2008 with my friend Stéphane, Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. It was also recorded by accordion and concertina player from Chicago John Williams, who has spent a lot of time in Doolin over the years. It is also called “The Dublin Lads”.
