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.

Charlie Harris’ Reel #1

“Charlie Harris’ Reel No. 1” is part of a set that I learned at a great session in Cooley’s Pub, in Ennistymon, with Stéphane, Adam Shapiro, Paul Dooley and a few others. It is played with another reel and they’re known together as “Charlie Harris’ Reels” and were recorded by De Dannan.
This reel also goes by the names “John Blessing’s” and “O’Connell’s Reel”, which is the oldest name I could find.

Hold The Reins

I learned “Hold The Reins” from a session recording I made of a nice evening in Hotel Doolin back in 2008 with my friend Stéphane, Yvonne Casey and Terry Bingham. It was also recorded by accordion and concertina player from Chicago John Williams, who has spent a lot of time in Doolin over the years. It is also called “The Dublin Lads”.
