Lady Ann Montgomery

I learned Lady Ann Montgomery through various sessions, and I would associate this reel with Noel O’Donoghue. It is a common session tune, and is very often followed by “Maud Millar’s” and “Molloy’s Favourite” (around Doolin anyways).

De’il Among The Tailors (The)

“The De’il Among The Tailors” is a setdance I learned from one of Doolin’s legends, concertina player Packie Russell. This being said, I actually first heard this tune on Hugh Healy & Blackie O’Connell’s album “We were drinking and kissing the ladies”. They mention Packie Russell as their source and so I learned it from the album “The Russell Family” as well.
