Larry’s Favourite

“Larry’s Favourite” is a composition of Paddy O’Brien from Tipperary. I learned this great reel from my friend Johannes Perritaz, a great flute player from Switzerland. I also associate this tune with Siobhan Peoples and Murty Ryan, who recorded it on their album “Time on our Hands”.

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.
