Laurel Tree (The)

“The Laurel Tree” is the second reel I have ever learned! I learned it from my friend Tom Delany during a lovely afternoon back in 2006 in the garden of Magnetic Music Café, where I used to work back then. I had this tune stuck in my head as it was the opening tune on Hugh and Colm Healy’s album “Macalla na hÓige”.

Bag of Spuds (The)

I learned the “Bag of Spuds” a long time ago and associate this tune with the great accordion player Seán Vaughan. It is a common session tune in Clare and I think I first learned it from Edel Fox and Ronan O’Flaherty’s album.

Kerryman’s Daughter (The)

“The Kerryman’s Daughter” is one of my favourite tunes. I associate this reel with Sean Vaughan (and learned it from a recording I made of a gig I played with Sean and Noel O’Donoghue). Anytime he plays this tune feels like it’s party time! Great tune, thanks Sean!
