Luachrachán’s Jig (The)

The Luachrachán’s Jig (or “Lúradán’s” and all other kinds of spellings – but it’s called “Luachrachán’s” in Junior Crehan’s Book) was composed by Junior Crehan from Ballimackea near Miltown Malbay. It is a common session tune that I learned from Junior Crehan’s Daughter Angela Crotty at a session in Gus O’Connor’s Pub.

“The Mother And Child” is a reel I learned from the playing of Micho Russell. The tune is also known as “The Yellow Cow”. John Williams recorded a nice version of this tune on his first solo album as well.

Jimmy Duffy’s No 2

This is the second tune of the “Jimmy Duffy’s Barndances”, which I learned from my friend, flute player Stéphane Germain. He actually enjoys playing these two barndances on the accordion, and it is one of our favourite sets to play at our Sunday afternoon session at Gus O’Connor’s Pub.
