Little John’s Hame

I first heard Little John’s Hame played by Dermot Byrne and James Cullinan at an amazing concert at the Corofin Traditional Festival back in 2013. This strathspey really stuck in my head the the following day I learned it from a video I found of Dermot Byrne playing with Tommy Peoples (see the video below).

This tune was composed by Scottish fiddle player James Scott Skinner and is not one you hear in sessions very often, but I love playing it nonetheless!

Drag Her Round The Road

I learned “Drag Her Round The Road” from Hugh Healy & Blackie O’Connell’s duet album “We Were Drinking And Kissing The Ladies”. It is a great reel which I have enjoyed playing for many years now and never get tired of it!
