Maid I Ne’er Forgot (The)

The Maid I Ne’er Forgot is often played before the Lads of Laois, another great reel. They were recorded together by Nollaig Casey & Arty McGlynn and the set was played at the local session I used to go to in Switzerland. I learned it here in Doolin though, from sessions with Christy Barry, Colin Nea and the great Michael Kelleher on fiddle.

Campbell’s Reel

This is a reel I learned from the old LP “The Russell Family”, featuring Micho, Packie & Gussie Russell. This particular tune is played on the recording by Micho and Gussie, both on tin whistle. I haven’t heard it in session that much, but it’s a nice tune nonetheless.

Collier’s (The)

“The Collier’s” is a common session tune and one of my favourite reels. I associate this tune with the great Tommy Peoples, but also with my friend John Fitzgerald, who is a great local whistle player here in Doolin with a style that reminds me very much of Micho Russell.
