Lads of Laois (The)

The Lads of Laois is a beautiful reel that I associate with the playing of Gerdie Commane, concertina player from Kilnamona. Michael Queally (fiddle) also recorded this tune on the band Moher’s first album, “Out on the Ocean”.

Humours of Glendart (The)

“The Humours of Glendart” is a common session tune which I learned through various sessions. I associate this tune with the great accordion player from Lisdoonvarna Bobby Gardiner, who lives in Tipperary. It is always a great pleasure to see Bobby on his visits to North Clare and a pleasure to share tunes with him.

Johnny Boyle’s

“Johnny Boyle’s” is a slide I learned from the playing of Derek Hickey and Liam Flanagan, on the compilation album from the Corofin Trad Festival. Apart from being an amazing accordion player, Derek is a real gentleman and it is always such a treat to see and hear him at festivals.
