Kiss The Maid Behind The Barrel

I learned Kiss The Maid Behind The Barrel through various sessions, as it is quite a popular tune which I have heard very often over the years. I associate this reel with Noel O’Donoghue, flute player from Drummevin near Kilfenora and a great friend who has been very supportive over the years. Thanks Noel!

“Charlie Harris’ Reel No. 1” is part of a set that I learned at a great session in Cooley’s Pub, in Ennistymon, with Stéphane, Adam Shapiro, Paul Dooley and a few others. It is played with another reel and they’re known together as “Charlie Harris’ Reels” and were recorded by De Dannan.
